Hate crimes or incidents can be related to age, disability, race or nationality, gender, religion or belief or sexual orientation.
Abuse can be verbal, physical or emotional and include intimidation, attack to property or person, written notes, emails and text messages.
Hate crimes and incidents are not acceptable. We take them very seriously and work alongside the police and other partners to tackle them. There are lots of ways you can report any hate crime or incident, so that we can do something about them and make our communities safer for everyone.
