Supporting Hate Crime Awareness Week
Wednesday 18th October 2017
This week is National Hate Crime Awareness Week and our partners from West Yorkshire Police and Leeds City Council held a stand in Bexley wing to raise awareness of the #leedsnoplaceforhate campaign.
Hate crime is any crime that is targeted at a person because of hostility or prejudice towards that person’s Disability; Race or ethnicity; Religion or belief; Sexual orientation; Transgender identity.
Anyone can report a hate crime or hate incident to the 24 hour helpline - 0800 138 1625.
Hate incident reporting centres have been set up to help people living and working in Leeds who have been the victim of a hate incident. This scheme is operated in partnership with West Yorkshire Police, Stop Hate UK and Leeds City Council.
