Hate crime is any criminal offence which is perceived by the victim or any other person, to be motivated by hostility or prejudice towards a person based on their race, religion, sexual orientation, disability, or gender identity.

 

Hate crime can be any criminal or non-criminal act such as graffiti, vandalism to a property, name calling, assault or online abuse using social media.

 

Remedi’s friendly team of Triage Workers and Support Workers will work with you to assess your needs following the hate crime and build a tailored support plan with you to address these needs, enabling you to cope and recover from the Hate Crime.
