Harassment can be a physical, spoken or emotional attack and is aimed at a person or their property.
Hate crime describes how individuals or groups can be harassed, victimised or abused
because of their age, sex, sexual orientation, race, faith, religion or belief or
disability. This kind of harassment can take many forms including physical,
spoken and emotional attacks and can be aimed at a person or their property.
Harassment targeted at someone that is motivated by 'hate' is a serious crime and we
will not accept it.
If you believe you are a victim of hate crime, or if you see an
incident or suspect this type of crime is being committed, please report the
matter to the police and contact any of our services access points.
All of our service access points are designated hate incident reporting centres.
Our employees there will help you to deal with reports or incidents in a
sensitive and understanding way.
In order to offer reassurance and support to victims of hate incidents, we
also work closely with partner agencies such as the Police, Wakefield Council
and the Victim Support Service.
