Hate incidents (hate crime)

Adur & Worthing Councils are committed to taking action against 'hate incidents' or 'hate crime' - these include discrimination or harassment which you believe is based on your race, colour, nationality, ethnic or cultural background, faith, religious beliefs, disability, sexuality or gender identity. As part of this commitment we need to monitor the number of incidents in our district and more importantly offer advice and support to victims.

A hate incident is any incident which is perceived to be so by the victim or any other person. These incidents can be directed at someone or their property, examples include: threats, insults, taunting, personal attacks, arson, graffiti, leaflets, etc.
