Hate hurts Wales
What is a hate crime?
A hate crime is any criminal behaviour which appears to be motivated by a hostility or prejudice, or includes words or behaviour that show hostility, based on a person’s perceived:
- sexual orientation
- transgender identity
A hate crime can include verbal abuse, intimidation, threats, harassment, assault and bullying, as well as damage to property. The perpetrator could be someone unknown to you, or they could be a friend.
Hate crime can take place both in person and online.
How to report a hate crime
If you have been a victim of hate crime you can report it to the police or to the National Hate Crime Report and Support Centre (run by Victim Support). You can also report these crimes if you see them happen to someone else.
Both the Police and Victim Support can offer you support to deal with what happened to you and find a way forward.
In an emergency call 999
In a non-emergency dial 101
You can talk to Victim Support as an alternative to the Police. They provide independent, confidential help, advice and support to victims and witnesses of hate crimes in Wales.
You can call Victim Support free at any time on 0300 3031 982
