Supporting victims of Hate Crime

Alert message sent 15/10/2019 11:03:00

Information sent on behalf of Derbyshire Police & Crime Commissioner

Gaining the right support at the right time is key to helping victims of hate crime.
There are many organisations both nationally and locally who offer confidential emotional support and counselling to all groups of society by methods that suit the victim either face-to-face, telephone, email or by post. Service users are encouraged to develop healthy, positive coping strategies, an inner feeling of strength and increased self-esteem to encourage healing, recovery and moving forward with life.
Also using restorative justice is an option if both parties are willing where victims come face-to-face with perpetrators to explain the impact the crime had on them so they can find a sense of closure.
Whether you choose to report the hate crime or not, don't feel isolated and alone and make sure you get as much support as possible.
You can find support services online or the police and other organisations will explain the support services available to you.
