Hate Crime

Hate related matters are any incidents or crimes perceived by the victim or others to be motivated by prejudice. It includes disability, gender identity, race, religion and sexual orientation

Victims and witnesses of hate crimes and hate incidents often find it difficult to report the matter directly to the police. But they may feel more comfortable talking to other ‘third party’ community organisations.

Staff and volunteers within these third party reporting centres have been trained to help victims and witnesses to submit a report to the police, or can make a report on their behalf.

We are working with Safer Wolverhampton and West Midlands Police to create more Third Party Reporting Centres in Wolverhampton.

We've also been working with Lichfield Diocese to raise awareness within the Christian community, so people can be more aware and provide support.
