If you are the victim of a hate incident or hate crime, or have witnessed one and want to report it, there are few places you can do this. You can come to the Wellbeing and Disability Services Reception in the Student Centre on the Queensgate campus, the Students' Union Advice Centre, or Reception in University Campus Barnsley - these are all Hate Crime Reporting Centres.
If you prefer, your report can be anonymous and if you wish, passed on to relevant agencies such as the Police, and in Huddersfield, Kirklees Safer Communities Partnership and Kirklees Race Equality Council.
A hate incident is perceived by the victim or any other person to be motivated by the offender’s hatred of someone because of their race, sexual orientation, disability and/or faith and religion. A hate incident becomes a hate crime when there is a criminal offence attached to it (such as a physical attack, a threat of attack or verbal abuse and insults).
In person: come to the Student Support Desk the Student Centre, Level 4, Central Services Building, Queensgate, Huddersfield HD1 3DH
For more information, please see Kirklees Hate Crime Reporting information or pick up a leaflet at Student Services reception.
In person: come to reception at the University Campus Barnsley.
