National Hate Crime Awareness Week

Hand with Stop Hate
We want all our tenants to feel safe in their homes and communities. You shouldn’t be targeted for your disability, gender identity, race, ethnicity or nationality, religion, faith or belief or sexual orientation. If you are, it’s a hate crime.

A hate crime could be any of the following -
• Physical violence
• Theft or damage to property
• Someone using offensive language towards you
• Someone harassing you because of who you are
• Someone posting abusive or offensive

This week we are supporting National Hate Crime Awareness week and we want to encourage victims to report hate crime, it should be reported to us or the police, you will be supported the whole way through. 


So why should you report it?
•    Hate Crime is under reported - please report it if you’re victim or witness a hate crime. Help and support is available to all of our tenants.
•    We will always take you seriously no matter what has happened. 
•    You’ll always be listened to and believed
•    The Police will do everything they can to find those responsible & bring them to justice 
•    Report it to stop it getting worse for you or someone else.
