CHALLENGE IT - REPORT IT - STOP IT

GayGlos has been involved for many years in raising the profile of Hate Incidents and Crimes.  We were instrumental in the development of the County's 5 Year (2016-21) Strategy for responding to the issues.  We continue to be part of the Strategic Partnership and Steering/Working Group in delivering against the Strategy.

The Four Key Objectives
  1. Prevention through education and awareness raising

  2. Increasing confidence in reporting

  3. Improved recording and collation of data

  4. Range of access to support and resolutions for victims

How to Report
  1. In an emergency - 999

  2. Non-emergency - 101

  3. 3rd Party Reporting Line at Victim Support - 0800 077 8460

  4. Text HATE to 80800

  5. As a witness of an incident you can contact Crimestoppers anonymously - 0800 555111

  6. You could also get in touch with us at GayGlos

Definitions

A Hate Incident is any such incident which does constitute a criminal offence.

A Hate Crime is defined as: "Any incident, which may or may not constitute a criminal offence, which is perceived by the victim, or any other person, as motivated by hostility or prejudice."

LGBTQ+ people continue to be on the receiving end of acts of violence, hostility, or intimidation directed towards them because of their sexual orientation or gender identity, and their perceived "difference".  The majority of these incidents (and crimes) go unreported, often because victims have got used to them happening and just see it as part of their everyday life.  The Hate Crime Partnership is keen to encourage reporting of all incidents.

Fist with HATE written on the fingers.
