Suffolk hate crime service
Hate crimes occur when a perpetrator targets a victim because of his or her perceived membership in a certain social group, usually defined by racial group, religion, sexual orientation, disability, class, ethnicity, nationality, age, gender, gender identity, or political affiliation.
Suffolk County Council is working with partners to support people who are bullied, harassed, attacked, or have their property stolen or damaged because of their race, belief, disability, gender, age, or sexual orientation. These actions are called 'hate incidents' or 'hate crimes'.
Partners include Suffolk Constabulary, Victim Support, Suffolk Inter Faith Resource (SIFRE), Suffolk Gay and Lesbian Helpline, Ipswich and Suffolk Council for Racial Equality (ISCRE), the Learning Disability Partnership Board, and Genesis Orwell Mencap.
To report hate incidents and hate crime related to race, belief, disability, gender, age or sexual orientation, please contact:
