This is considered a criminal offence and should be reported to the police immediately.
A hate crime is a crime committed against someone because of their disability, ethnicity, religious beliefs, gender identity or sexual orientation. We treat hate crime very seriously and will always take action against the person(s) responsible and support prosecution where possible.
- If you are in immediate danger, always call 999.
- If the crime isn’t an emergency, call 101 or contact your local police and/or safer neighbourhood team (opens in new window).
- Once you have reported it to the police, please contact us with the crime reference report number or CAD number, along with the officer’s name so we can contact them and work with them to agree on the next steps with you and the police.
