From 1 May 2017 Stop Hate UK has a dedicated helpline for anyone affected by Hate Crime. This includes anyone that works or studies at Queen Mary University of London and applies to victims of Hate Crime, witnesses to incidents that could be Hate Crimes or anyone who is a third party to an incident that could be a Hate Crime.
The service is available to you whether on campus, at home, out shopping or on holiday. Wherever the incident occurs we are here to offer help.
QMUL stands against Hate and, on Friday 24 March 2017, QMUL Chief Operating Officer, came together with Chief Executive Officer of Queen Mary Students’ Union (QMSU) and QMSU VP Welfare to reaffirm their stance on tackling hate crime and discrimination by signing the Tower Hamlets ‘No Place for Hate’ pledge.
QMUL is committed to the provision of equality of opportunity for all its students and staff. By signing the pledge, they recognise that all agencies – statutory, voluntary, community and private sector – have a role to play in tackling hate and discrimination and promoting community safety. Through this, they commit themselves to creating a Tower Hamlets that has no place for hate.
Following the signing of the Tower Hamlets “No Place For Hate” pledge, the Stop Hate Crime 24 Hour Helpline at QMUL for staff and students will be a continuity and how they are living their “No Place for Hate” pledge. The 24 Hour Helpline at QMUL is provision of a 24 hour helpline, for victims and witnesses of hate crime, which will provide independent support and advice.
