Hate Crime Support

A hate incident is any incident which may or may not constitute a criminal offence – perceived by the victim or any other person, as being motivated by prejudice or hate. A hate crime is when the incident does constitute a criminal offence.

Hate crime/incidents can affect different people in different ways; this project will provide tailored support to each individual with the hope of overcoming the incident. This service aims to provide free and confidential support to those that have been a victim of a hate crime/incident. Any individual who has been affected by a hate crime is entitled to support, regardless of whether it has been reported to the police or not.

Our newly appointed Hate Crime Worker will provide each person with non-judgemental, practical and emotional support to help anyone overcome and recover from hate crime/incidents.

Services that we provide include, but are not limited to:

  • Practical Support – Creating personal safety plans,
  • Emotional Support – talking about the incident (if wanted) and improving confidence to aide recovery
  • Advocacy with the Police Service
  • Support through the Criminal Justice System (where necessary)
  • Referral to other appropriate service (where necessary)
