Thames Valley Police are working together with the Hate Crime Network (HCN) to recruit Hate Crime Champions (HCC’s) within the South and Vale area.
A hate crime is any criminal offence which is perceived, by the victim or any other person, to be motivated by a hostility or prejudice held by the offender. These prejudices surround an individual’s disability, gender identity, race, ethnicity, religion, or sexual orientation.
The HCN, who are funded by the Police and Crime Commissioner, are actively looking for people to volunteer to be a ‘Hate Crime Champion’ in their community, this will help build bridges, encourage people to report crimes and offer support to vulnerable people.
A description of the role and details of how to volunteer is here.
