National LGBT Hate Crime Project Completed

Date added: 1 February 2016

We've reached the end of the new one-year nation-wide Project to encourage the reporting of homophobic, transphobic and biphobic crime, funded by the Equality and Human Rights Commission.

The project has proved a great success, nationally and locally, however you measure it: our own Help Support and Advocacy Service has seen an encouraging increase in crime-related calls and contacts during the project lifetime. More victims than ever before are getting help, coping with the after-effects, and moving on in their lives, in the South West and nationally.

If you experience phobic abuse, harassment, assault etc. in the South West, let us know that it's happened, however minor. This will help us get a sense of how many low-level and high-level phobic incidents there are in the South West. If you want, we can offer information, help and support. Contact our confidential community helpline on 0800 612 3010 (free from landlines and mobiles) or e-mail This email address is being protected from spambots.

Here in the South West Intercom was working in this project with local partners, including SPACE Youth Project in Dorset, Proud2Be in Totnes, and YAY Youth Group in Cornwall. Have a look at us on Youtube, and to see all the lead agencies in the project, and their different helpline contacts actross the country, have a look at the special project website, www.lgbthatecrime.org.uk.

The Intercom Trust team is proud that Intercom was a national lead agency in this great new Project. To contact us, phone our Helpline (freephone 0800 612 3010, or on 01392 201018), or e-mail This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
