Hate Crime Information

 A Hate Crime incident is:


Any incident perceived by the victim, or any other person, as being motivated by prejudice or hate towards an identifiable person or group of people. This could be on the basis of:

  • Age
  • Disability
  • Gender identity
  • Race or ethnic origin
  • Religion, faith or belief 
  • Sexual orientation

 
Hate crimes can include:

  • threatening behaviour
  • assault
  • robbery
  • damage to property
  • inciting others to commit hate crimes
  • harassment

 

FRAE Fife is an official 3rd-Party Reporting Centre for Hate Crime. Currently we work closely with members of Ethnic Minority Communities to raise awareness of the nature and consequences of Hate Crime and to advise how the victims can report it.

 

Promoting Equality in local communities 

Awareness-raising session workshops are held within local BME communities so discrimination and hate crimes against people with protected characteristics, covered by current hate crime legislation (minority ethnic people, people of faith, disabled people, LGBT people) can be reduced.

 

We provide a full range of information regarding hate crime and we provide victims with help and support in reporting any incidents to the designated authorities. 

 

Please contact us to report hate crime incidents.


You do not need to be a victim of the incident and you do not have to give your personal details.


If you need immediate help, you should report the incident by dialling 999, and ask the operator for the Police.


In less urgent cases, you can contact us at FRAE Fife office.

 

The information you provide will only be used to assist victims to receive appropriate help and to monitor hate crime incidents in Fife. This will include:
1.    Passing on information to relevant agencies that can assist.
2.    Recording and monitoring information to identify repeat victims and offenders.
3.    Producing regular reports on hate crime incidents in Fife.
