Here are some general sources of support:
- Citizens Advice provides some useful information on the different types of harassment and hate crime people may experience including disability hate crime, racist and religious hate crime, sexual harassment, and sexual orientation and transgender identity hate crime.
- The Samaritans provide emotional support to anyone in emotional distress, struggling to cope, or at risk of suicide throughout the UK and Ireland. Call 116 123, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
- Stop Hate UK offers support to victims of hate crime.
- True Vision offers guidance on reporting hate crime and hate incidents. If you do not wish to talk to anyone in person about the incident or wish to remain anonymous, there is an online form for reporting hate crime; you can report non-crime hate incidents to the police to try and prevent any escalation in seriousness.
- Victim Support When you report a crime to the police, they should automatically ask you if you would like help from an organisation such as Victim Support. But anyone affected by crime can contact them directly. You don’t need to talk to the police to get Victim Support help.
