Hate crime

Hate crime is a crime committed against someone because of their disability, gender-identity, race, religion, belief, or sexual orientation. 

For example, a person or group of people could have; 
  • threatened or hurt you
  • stolen from you and damaged something you own
  • encouraged others to commit hate crime
  • bullied you, for example spat at you or called you names
