Reporting Hate Crime

In an emergency always call 999

Have you or someone you know been a victim of a hate crime or hate incident?

Hate crimes and incidents come in many different forms. It can be because of hatred on the grounds of your sex, gender identity, race, religion, sexual orientation, transgender identity, or disability.

Hate crime in any form is wrong. That is why it is important that if hate crime happens to you or someone you know, that you report it.

The University has an online reporting tool HERE 
You can report anonymously or with contact details (more information HERE). This helpful infographic shows you how to make a report and what happens next (the example used in this infographic is an incident of racial abuse but this gives you an indication of how all reports of hate incidents and harassment are progressed).

True Vision is here to give you information about hate crime or incidents and advice on how to report it.

On their website, you can:

  • find out what hate crimes or hate incidents are
  • find out about the ways you can report them
  • report using the online form
  • find information about people that can help and support you if you have been a victim

Reporting makes a difference – to you, your friends, and your community. By reporting hate crime when it happens, you can help stop it happening to someone else. You will also help the police to better understand the level of hate crime in your local area, and improve the way they respond to it.
