The Brain Charity is proud to announce that we are now a Hate Crime Reporting Centre and we can report hate crime to the police on behalf of hate crime victims. Anyone can come to us to report a hate crime and all conversations will be treated confidentially and handled in the appropriate manner; we are a safe space and we treat everyone with respect.
A crime committed against someone because of their race, religion, sexuality, disability or gender is defined as a hate crime and all reports will be treated seriously.
Dominique Walker from Merseyside police recently came in to talk to our service team about their responsibilities in handling the reporting of hate crime and spoke about the protection that is given to victims and the support agencies that the police work with to ensure that victims of hate crime get the help that they need.
If you experience or witness a hate crime, it can be reported in a number of ways and this website lists the various ways that the crime can be reported.
Anywhere you see the hand logo is a safe and secure environment where you can make your report.
