Hate crime

Hate crimes are targeted at a person because of hostility or prejudice towards that person's:

  • disability
  • race or ethnicity
  • religion or belief
  • sexual orientation
  • transgender identity

The behaviour can be committed against a person or property, and a victim does not have to be a member of the group at which the hostility is targeted. A hate incident can almost feel like a crime but where the law may not have been broken. If you are unsure, you can contact a specialist agency who can offer you guidance and support you to report to the police if you feel this is the best course of action for you.
