Hate Crime- know what it is and how to report it

Hate Crime- know what it is and how to report it

You’re victim of a hate incident if you experience hostility or prejudice towards you because of things that make you, you.

Someone might target your ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, disability, gender, etc, to abuse you, vandalise your property or harass you.

It could be in-person or online, or happen to someone you care about.

Why do we need Hate Crime Awareness Week?

We stand together with others this National Hate Crime Awareness Week (9 to 16 October) to encourage victims to report incidents in confidence and to remind offenders that we won’t accept this behaviour.

Hate crimes are significantly under-reported and can escalate. Unfortunately some people don’t recognise such incidents as crimes and others might understandably lack the confidence to come forward about it.

By reporting them if they happen to you or someone else, you can help us and the police understand the extent of hate crime in your local area so we can deal with it more effectively. Your actions could prevent incidents from happening again and stop others from being victimised.

How to report it?

There are a number of ways you can report hate crime.

To contact the police, or speak to someone outside of Bolton at Home about it:

• Phone the police by calling 101

• Report it online via the True Vision website at www.report-it.org.uk

• You can find a list of phone numbers for other third party reporting centres in Bolton here: www.bolton.gov.uk/community-safety-anti-social-behaviour/hate-crime

You can also report it to us:

• Phone 01204 328000

• Email Bhtenancy.enforcementservice@boltonathome.org.uk

• Contact our UCAN centre teams here: www.boltonathome.org.uk/ucan

Take care.

Tap4 issues

This quarter, we thought you’d find our 2020/21 Annual Report more useful than a standalone issue of TAP4.

Why? Because it includes more detail on many of the topics we’d otherwise include in the latest TAP4 issue.

  • a breakdown of how we spent EVERY PENNY from each pound of rent you'd paid us, 

  • how building NEW BUILD HOMES benefits you, regardless of whether you live in one, 

  • and the exact number of COMPLAINTS we’ve received, as well as some examples of how we’ve learnt from them (such as missed appointments, fly tipping, and our Antisocial Behaviour Policy).
