A hate crime is an act of violence, hostility or discrimination against a person based on their identity or perceived difference.

If a hate crime happens to you, if you see one happen, or you know someone it has happened to, say something. 

Contact the police

In an emergency call 999. To report a crime or incident that is no longer happening call 101.

You can also visit your local police station, or speak to your community Police Officer or PCSO.
