Working together, Stop Hate UK and local authorities aim to provide a knowledgeable and specialised service of guidance and support for residents of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough, in times of unwelcome distress, hate, prejudice, and discrimination.

Rose Simkins

Chief Executive

"All forms of hate crime are significantly under-reported with some communities reluctant to engage with local authorities or the police. Our services support, advise and provide help to people who may feel they have nowhere else to turn. Reporting as a victim, or witness, of hate crime is completely confidential. It may even be the first time an individual has talked to someone about their experience.

No-one should suffer from hate crime in silence and, working with local authorities and the police, we can help make a different in Cambridgeshire & Peterborough."
