Hate crime and hate incidents

We take hate crime and hate incidents very seriously.

A hate crime or hate incident is an incident or crime committed because of who you are or who someone thinks you are. Quite simply, if because of your age, disability, sexuality, religion, ethnicity, gender (including gender identity) or lifestyle choice (eg Goth) someone or a group of people targets you, commit a crime against you, bullies you or harasses you, then this is a hate crime or hate incident.

If you are a victim of a hate crime or hate incident you can report the incident to the police or to Report Hate Crime websiteOpens new window.  If you are a council tenant you can also report it to your local District Housing Office - your Neighbourhood Officer will investigate the complaint. 

The council's Hate crime page has more information.
