Hate Crime

Hate crime is 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, based upon the victim's:

  • Disability

  • Race, Ethnicity or Nationality

  • Religion, faith or belief

  • Sexual orientation

Hate crime can include verbal abuse, intimidation, threats, harassment, assault and bullying, as well as damage to property. The perpetrator can also be a friend, carer or acquaintance who exploits their relationship with the victim for financial gain or some other criminal purpose.
