Between November 14 – 20, individuals and organisations around the country will participate in Transgender Awareness Week to help raise the visibility of transgender and gender variant people, and address the issues the community faces.

The final day of Transgender Awareness Week is Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDOR), an annual observance on November 20 that honors the memory of those whose lives were lost in acts of anti-transgender violence.

An LGBT hate crime is any criminal offence which is perceived, by the victim or any other person, to be motivated by a hostility or prejudice based on a person's (perceived) sexual orientation or gender identity.

Reporting

"Only 6% of anti-LGBT harrassment in the UK is reported to police." People decide not to report hate crimes for a whole host of reasons, but often it's because they don't think anything can be done about it. However, without data about hate crime hotspots the police find it difficult to police effectively.

You can report a hate crime online at, http://www.report-it.org.uk/home or by dialling 101. In an emergency always dial 999.

(*EU LGBT Survey, FRA, 2014)

Throughout National Hate Crime Awareness week we attended a number of events to help people better understand what Hate Crime is and the ways in which people can get support and report it. We helped Devon & Cornwall police launch the 'Zero Tolerance to Hate Crime' campaign in Exeter, Guildhall - and we were also a part of the Safer Salisbury Showcase, which brought together services, support, schemes and initiatives that are working to make the area safer. We were part of the Hate crime event held in Plymouth City Centre, as well as attending a Prejudice Free Hate Crime conference in Poole, in Dorset.

It is important to remember that long after Hate Crime Awareness week is over, we need to continue to raise awareness of the issues that effect our communities and that we are here to support you if are effected by Hate Crime and are in need of our services: 0800 612 3010
