Help and support
Community Safety Partners have produced an e-learning package, which aims to increase both knowledge of Hate Crime and your understanding of how to respond to it. The training will boost your confidence and help you provide the best possible support for people who may be vulnerable.
EQuIP is a charity promoting equality and inclusion across Warwickshire. Part of the Equality and Inclusion Partnership, Equip is working across Warwickshire to eliminate discrimination in all its forms. EQuIP is delivering Hate Crime awareness sessions to community groups and professionals. The face-to-face sessions aim to raise awareness of hate crime, the forms it can take, bust any myths surrounding hate crime, and signpost to reporting mechanisms and support available to those affected.
You can report a hate crime in confidence in several ways and to various organisations:
- For non-emergencies call the Police 101.
- In an emergency, please dial 999.
- Report online to the Police via True Vision.
- Call in at a Police station or stop a Police Officer in the street.
- Visit Warwickshire’s reporthatenow.com website where you can choose to report hate incidents to the Police (via True Vision) or to the Warwickshire Hate Crime Partnership (via independent charity, EQuIP). If you report to EQuIP, this can be done anonymously. This website is not a replacement for the Police. In an emergency, please dial 999.
- Contact Victim Support on 01926 682 693.
- Victims of anti-Muslim hate can also report online to Tell MAMA or by calling them on 0800 456 1226. Tell MAMA supports victims of anti-Muslim hate and is a public service which also measures and monitors anti-Muslim incidents. It is not a replacement for the Police Service.
