A hate crime is any criminal offence or incident which is perceived by the victim, or any other person as being motivated by prejudice or hate, based on a person’s real or perceived race, religious belief, sexual orientation, disability or transgender identity.

Hate crimes statistics across the UK are shocking, with a total of 52,028 crimes recorded in 2009 in which the offence was motivated by prejudice. These crimes can have a far more serious psychological effect on the victims and the communities they represent than many other crimes.

This module is aimed primarily at those working with vulnerable people in our communities however, the module is appropriate for anyone who wishes to increase their awareness of hate crime, and understand how to recognise and report hate crimes.
