The second part of the National LGBT Hate Crime reporting campaign was launched recently and The Intercom Trust are proud to be working alongside 35 LGBT Consortium member organisations to encourage LGBT people and their supporters to recognise hate crimes when they happen, to seek help and support; and if possible, report it.
GayCornwall gives full support to this campaign. It is really important to talk more about LGBT hate crime. Don’t be afraid to report it and get needed support.
Did you know that only 1 in 10 LGBT hate crimes are reported to the police?
Did you know that 100 anti-LGBT hate crimes get recorded each week by police in the UK?
Did you know that over 39,000 LGBT hate crimes are committed nationally each year?
Did you know that 70% of LGBT people in the UK avoid holding hands in public because of fear of violence?
Let’s help people talk about hate crime, report it and get the support they need.
