If someone has committed a crime against you because of your:

  • disability
  • gender identity
  • race
  • religion or belief
  • sexual orientation

Then this is a hate crime and it’s really important that you speak to someone. If you’ve seen or know about a hate crime, please report it.

If you or someone else is in immediate danger please call 999.

Let’s stop hate crime

We work with the police, charities, community and voluntary groups, and private companies to try and stop hate crime from happening - together we’re called the Warrington Hate Crime and Incident Partnership. Our Hate Crime Strategy for Warrington explains that we won’t tolerate it, and how we’ll support victims to a better and safer future.

Hate crime affects all communities, and it can make people feel scared, alone and at risk of harm. We want to:

  • make sure that people understand what a hate crime is, and how badly it can affect individuals and communities
  • encourage people to report hate crime, and make sure they know where to get help and support, and what will happen next
  • work with minority communities to try and stop hate crime based on race and religion
  • try and stop crimes against disabled people, and make sure people know what disability-related harassment and hate crime is, the effect it has, and why it’s really important to report it – we have to challenge the way disabled people are viewed, valued and included in society

The Wise Up Awards are run every year to celebrate the work schools in Warrington do to tackle hate crime and bullying.
