Hate Crime Reporting

12th December 2017

Rotherham Ethnic Minority Alliance, Speak Up Self Advocacy and The Rainbow Project are working in partnership to offer a structured model of Community Reporting Centres, funded by the Safer Rother Partnership.  Community reporting centres are an alternative method of reporting hate crime and hate incidents for those from community who are not comfortable or confident with reporting directly to the police. 

We can support people and families affected by any form of Hate Incident/Hate Crime.

 What is a hate crime/hate incident?

 

Hate Crime

A crime that the victim or any other person perceives to be motivated by hostility or prejudice towards any aspect of a person’s identity. Police forces in England, Wales and Northern Ireland annually monitor five strands of Hate Crime:

Disability

Gender Identity

Race, Ethnicity or Nationality

Religion, Faith or Belief

Sexual Orientation

Hate Incident

Any incident, which may or may not be a crime that the victim or any other person perceives to be motivated by hostility or prejudice towards any aspect of a person’s identity.

REMA will be supporting people from faith and race communities

Speak Up Self Advocacy supporting people with disabilities

And

The Rainbow Project supporting people from the LGBT communities

Each service has dedicated support workers that can support a victim of hate crime to make a report and support their journey through the reporting systems.

The service offers bilingual support including British Sign Language

We can report anonymously or on behalf of others

It is imperative to report every incident of hate including; name calling, graffiti, hostile behaviours, unfair treatment due to being a member of a protected characteristic group

We will also be supporting existing reporting centres throughout the borough. (list attached)

 

Each service has a dedicated whatsapp service and email address detailed
