Help and advice about anti-social behaviour and hate incidents
A hate incident or hate crime is any incident/crime perceived, by the victim or any other person, to be motivated by prejudice or hate. This includes discrimination against a person's race, religion, sexuality, gender identity or disability. It can include criminal offences against a person or property.
Examples of hate incidents include verbal or written abuse, harassment and intimidation, damage to property or physical assault. It can also include texts or emails.
