We encourage everyone to report incidents that they experience or witness. How to do it will vary depending on where you live because unfortunately Stop Hate UK is not funded to work in every part of the UK. 

If there is an immediate threat to life or the crime is ongoing, you should call 999.

If you are below the age of 18, you can report it to Call Hate Out.

If English is not your first language, we will seek the help of a translator so you can still report what has happened.
