Have you been affected by hate crime?
Any crime or incident which you believe is happening because of race, ethnicity, religion or belief, gender identity, sexual orientation or disability is a hate crime. You could also be a victim of hate crime if you believe you are being targeted because the offender perceives you to be different in some way.
Any experience of hate crime may leave you feeling angry, alone, stressed, depressed or frightened. You don’t have to deal with this on your own, Lancashire Victim Services are here to support you whenever you need our help. It doesn’t matter if you aren’t sure whether an incident amounts to a crime or if you haven’t reported it to the police. We are here – to talk, to listen, for advice, for help.
All of our services are free and confidential. For more information head to the website here.
