Hate Crime Awareness Week

This week is National Hate Crime Awareness Week (11th October – 18th October 2014).

The purpose of Hate Crime Awareness Week is to tackle local hate crime issues by raising awareness of what hate crime is and how to respond to it. There are a wide range of events taking place across Swansea, and Neath Port Talbot. Information on these activities is available online.

Each day has been assigned against a protected characteristic:

  • Monday 13th October – Religion or Belief
  • Tuesday 14th October – Disability (including ‘Mate Crime’)
  • Wednesday 15th October – Sexual Orientation
  • Thursday 16th October – Race
  • Friday 17th October – Gender Identity

You can follow progress on #hcawarenesscymru  

Reporting every incident helps

If you feel there is an immediate danger, call 999.

If it’s not urgent, call the police on 101 any time of day or night.
