Speaking up can be difficult, but reporting makes a difference. It can help prevent it happening to other people and improve how services respond. You can tell the police directly or we can discuss your options and help with reporting.

If you’ve experienced anti-LGBT+ violence, abuse or harassment, and need a safe space to talk, our LGBT+ Hate Crime Helpline is here for you. We’re able to provide independent advice, support, and signposting to organisations that are local to you if you would like further help.
Our helpline is run by LGBT+ people for LGBT+ people, and our service is confidential, independent and based within LGBT+ communities. You can talk to our helpline team about insults, intimidation, threats, online abuse or violence targeting you because of your sexual orientation or gender identity.
We can provide support wherever you are based in the UK, and are open [between 10am and 4pm] from Monday – Friday.
