Reporting a hate crime
It is really important to report a hate crime so that the police can recognise it as an issue, and punish the perpetrators. There are different ways you can report a hate crime, whether you have been a victim, a witness, or reporting on behalf of someone else.
You can report hate crimes through the Sheffield Pride website here.
In an emergency – call 999
