The West Midlands Hate Crime Victim Service are a support service for all victims and witnesses of hate crime and hate incidents.
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.
Our 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.
We can offer you:
• Confidential emotional and practical support
• Support at court
• Access to a range of support agencies
• Support with your Victim Personal Statement
We can support you whether the offence has been reported to the police or not.
Our support spans across the whole of the West Midlands, and our diverse team of volunteers and staff have a great deal of local knowledge to best support you through your journey.
We work in partnership with local and national charities across the region to ensure you are receiving the best support in your recovery.
