Have you or someone you know been a victim of a hate crime or hate incident?
Hate crimes and incidents come in many different forms. It can be because of hatred on the grounds of your race, religion, sexual orientation, transgender identity or disability.
Hate crime in any form is wrong. That is why it is important that if hate crime happens to you or someone you know, that you report it
Your online report will be forwarded immediately to the relevant police force for investigation but it may not receive attention for several hours. For this reason, you should never report online an incident where:
- The offender is still present
- You or anyone else is seriously hurt or in danger
- You think the offender may return
- In the above circumstances, we would urge you to call 999 and the police will respond immediately.

CACH (Communities Against Crimes of Hate) is an organisation set up in Staffordshire (covering Stafford Borough, South Staffordshire, Cannock Chase, East Staffordshire, Tamworth Borough and Lichfield) to help victims of these sorts of incidents. Any incident or crime that is thought might be motivated by the victim’s ‘difference’ can be reported to CACH (pronounced ‘catch’)
