Hate crime

Hate crime is any incident which is perceived to be motivated by prejudice based on the victim's disability, race, religion, gender identity or sexual orientation. Nobody should have to live with the fear, anxiety and consequences of hate crime and I will keep working with organisations to raise its profile across all strands of diversity. People need to be aware of what hate crimes are, the impact they have, how to report them, and where to get the support that they need should they become a victim of hate crime.
