Hate crime is the term used to describe an incident or crime against someone based on a part of their identity. There are five categories of ‘identity’, when a person is targeted because of a hostility or prejudice towards their:
- race or ethnicity;
- religion or belief (which includes non-belief);
- sexual orientation; or
- gender identity.
Hate crime can be any criminal or non-criminal act such as graffiti, vandalism to a property, name calling, assault or online abuse using social media. Abuse, name calling, assault, blackmail, harassment, intimidation, bullying or exploitation are all forms of hate crime and must be reported.
Experiencing hate crime can be a particularly frightening experience as the victim will have been targeted because of who they are, or who or what their attacker thinks they are. Unlike non-identity related offences, the attack is very personal and specifically targeted, which means it’s less likely to be a random attack.
Reporting Hate Crime
The Club condemns Hate Crime and encourages anyone who is a victim of it or otherwise aware of it to report it. By reporting incidents, you can help yourself and you may be able to prevent it happening to others.
- Telephone: 999 in an emergency or 101 for non-emergencies.
