Young people can get expert help to report hate crime

Young people in Hammersmith & Fulham now have their own confidential 24-hour support service to report hate crime.

If you’re under the age of 18 and you’ve experienced or witnessed hate crime, use the new Call Hate Out service be calling 0808 801 0576, texting 07717 989 025 or by visiting the Call Hate Out website.

“Young people are increasingly a target when they’re using social media and chat groups,” says Cllr Sue Fennimore, Deputy Leader of H&F Council.

“The Call Hate Out service is a great way for young people to discuss any issues anonymously with an expert who is not a parent, teacher or police officer. I urge anyone under the age of 18 who witnesses or experiences a hate crime to use Call Hate Out so they can receive the support they need.”

New service

The new service is provided by charity Stop Hate UK, thanks to support from the Building a Stronger Britain Together project.

The charity set up ts Stop Hate Line in 2006 in response to the Macpherson Report (enquiry into the handling of the death of Stephen Lawrence) which states that victims and witnesses should be able to report hate incidents 24-hours-a-day and to someone other than the police.
