Stop Hate UK is pleased to announce the launch of its Helpline service in Newcastle, from 1st November 2018.
Councillor Habib Rahman, cabinet member for communities and chair of Safe Newcastle said…
“There is no place for hate and prejudice in Newcastle. We are a city of fairness, tolerance and equality, and tackling hate crime is a priority. We know the devastating impact hate crime has on victims and we are committed to making our communities safer. That’s why we’re bringing in the Stop Hate UK service to help manage hate crime reporting in the city. We are confident that victims will get their voice heard and receive the support they need.”
Stop Hate UK has over 23 years experience in tackling Hate Crime and now seen as a leading national charity.
Our Chief Executive, Rose Simkins, said:
“The Stop Hate Line and our other range of reporting channels give victims and witnesses of Hate Crime a safe and independent place to talk about their experiences and explore the options for taking things further. Sadly the occurrence of Hate Crime, both offline and online, has increased nationally but, working together with Safe Newcastle, this is a trend we can start to reverse.”
