Friday 21 April 2017From Monday 1 May, Stop Hate UK has a dedicated helpline open for anyone affected by hate incidents or hate crime that works or studies at QMUL. 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.
A hate incident is any behaviour that is motivated by hatred or hostility towards any aspect of your identity. For example your gender, disability, faith, gender identity or sexual orientation.
You can contact the Stop Hate Line anonymously if you prefer, or with your consent, we can contact the police, university authorities or the council on your behalf.
The Stop Hate Line is open 24 hours a day, every day of the year on 0800 138 1625. The helpline is also available by text message on 07717 989 025 and by email to email@example.com. Service users with hearing impairments can report via interactive BSL by clicking the link on our website www.stophateuk.org. Victims and witnesses can also chat on the web or fill in an online form by visiting www.stophateuk.org/talk.
The charity set up the Stop Hate Line in 2006 in direct response to Recommendation 16 of the Macpherson Report (the 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. The patron of the charity is Baroness Doreen Lawrence of Clarendon OBE, of Clarendon in the Commonwealth Realm of Jamaica, and ambassadors are Canon Mark Oakley of St Paul’s Cathedral and Great Britain athlete Adrian Derbyshire.
