Did you know that Citizens Advice County Durham is a Hate Crime Reporting Centre?

January 22, 2020

In 2017, 62,518 hate crimes were recorded by the police in England and Wales.

Hate incidents involve violence or hostility against you because of who you are. This can be based on someone’s prejudice towards you because of your race, religion, sexual orientation, disability or because you are transgender.

Did you know that you can report a hate incident even if it wasn’t directed towards you?
In an emergency, always contact the police – phone 999. Remember to take an incident or crime number.

You can also go to your local Citizens Advice.  They can work with other local organisations to make sure you get all the help you need.

We also work together with other organisations to help stamp out hate incidents right across the local area.
