We're here to provide advice and support for anyone who experiences a hate crime.
A hate crime is any form of criminal offence that is aimed towards a person's race, disability, religion, sexual orientation or transgender identity. This includes physical abuse, swearing or discriminatory remarks, intimidation and much more. However, any form of prejudice, although not necessarily a criminal offence, can also be considered a hate incident and should still be reported.
You aren't alone in this...
Your Students' Union does not tolerate any form of abuse or discrimination based on a person's race, disability, religion, sexual orientation or transgender identity. Please contact us if you have experienced this and wish to report it. Our Academic & Welfare Advisers are on hand to provide support to anyone who is not comfortable enough to contact the police directly and/or those who are simply seeking advice on the best course of action to take. The Advice & Support Centre is located just inside Hutton Hub, College Lane. We're open for students to drop-in and speak to us from 10:00-16:00, Monday to Friday, all year round (except Bank Holidays and University Close Days). Alternatively you can call us on 01707 285022 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you wish to report the hate crime or incident online, you can also do so here. However, if you are a victim of a hate crime or incident we strongly advise that you approach either the police or a third party reporting centre for support.
