Reporting hate incidents/hate crimes in Newcastle

Hate crime such as racist, homophobic, religious, transphobic or disability incidents should not happen, but they still do. Nobody should suffer because of who they are and nobody should have to put up with it. You can do something about it.

If you, your family or friends are having problems because of your 'race' or skin colour, this is a racist incident.

If you, your family or friends are having problems because of your sexual orientation or transgender identity, this is a homophobic or transphobic incident.

If you, your family or friends have been targeted because you have a disability then this is a disability hate crime.

Some types of these incidents, such as verbal abuse and threats are obvious. Other examples, such as damage to your property, bullying or rude gestures are harder to identify.  If you believe you have experienced a hate incident, even if you have no proof, report it.
