Tackling Hate Crime Together



People are still abused and targeted simply because of who they are.  Many of these people will be a victim of hate crime.  
Hate crime or incident is any incident that is perceived by the victim or any other person as being motivated by prejudice or hatred based on someone’s, race, colour or ethnic origin, nationality or national origin, religion, faith or belief, gender or gender identity, sexuality or sexual orientation, disability, lifestyle or dress.

We can all play a role in tackling Hate Crime, through raising awareness of it  and encouraging more people to report it and to access support. The Police want to hear about all incidents and there are lots of ways you can get the information to them: http://www.report-it.org.uk/report_a_hate_crime
 
Many community centres across Bolton actively take reports of these incidents, including at The Bolton Hub.  For further information look at the main Bolton hate crime pages, which lists other reporting centres, online training resources and the latest local information: http://www.bolton.gov.uk/website/Pages/Hatecrime.aspx
