    National Hate Crime Awareness Week

    All day
    12/10/19-19/10/19
    United Kingdom

    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:

    • disability
    • race or ethnicity
    • religion or belief (which includes non-belief)
    • sexual orientation
    • 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.

    Experiencing hate crime can be a particularly frightening experience as you've been targeted because of who you are, or who or what your attacker thinks you 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.
