Hate Hurts Wales

Hate Hurts Wales’

Let’s stand up to hate crime together.


This National Hate Crime Awareness Week (October 9th – 16th October), the Council is backing the Welsh Government’s #hatehurtswales campaign to help raise awareness and understanding of hate crime and encourage people to report it.


The campaign was developed with input from stakeholders and real experiences of prosecuted hate crime to show the harmful impact that hate crime has on individuals and our wider society.

How to report a hate crime

If you have been a victim of hate crime you can report it to the police or to the National Hate Crime Report and Support Centre (run by Victim Support). You can also report these crimes if you see them happen to someone else.

Both the Police and Victim Support can offer you support to deal with what happened to you and find a way forward.

In an emergency call 999
In a non-emergency dial 101

Victim Support
