National Hate Crime Awareness Week

What is a Hate Crime

A crime that the victim or any other person perceives to be motivated by hostility or prejudice towards any aspect of a person’s identity. Police forces in England, Wales and Northern Ireland annually monitor five strands of Hate Crime:

  • Disability
  • Gender Identity
  • Race, Ethnicity or Nationality
  • Religion, Faith or Belief
  • Sexual Orientation

Stop Hate UK can support you if you have been targeted because of any aspect of your identity. You can also reach out if you see a hate crime happen or know someone who is a victim. 

Take Five to Stop Fraud

Take Five Stop Fraud is a national campaign that offers straight-forward and impartial advice to help everyone protect themselves from preventable financial fraud. This includes email deception and phone-based scams as well as online fraud – particularly where criminals impersonate trusted organisations.

Vishing is just one type of impersonation scam. Criminals won’t just get in touch over the phone, they might also reach out via text, email, letter or even in person.

The same rules apply for any type of scam, if anyone is trying to rush or panic you it is best to Stop, Challenge, Protect and refuse to share your personal or financial information.
STOPTaking a moment to stop and think before parting with your money or information could keep you safe.
CHALLENGECould it be fake? It’s ok to reject, refuse or ignore any requests. Only criminals will try to rush or panic you.
PROTECTContact your bank immediately if you think you’ve fallen for a scam and report it to Action Fraud.
