Many Hate Crimes go unreported as they are seen by the victim as not being worth reporting, taking up too much time to report, there is little point reporting it since it’ll be impossible to find the perpetrator, or because of negative experiences with the police. 

However it is vital that incidents of hate crime are reported so that the University has a full picture of what is happening within our community. This knowledge could help us to take targeted action and in the future, better support others who may face similar experiences. 

Hate crime is illegal and you can make a report directly to the police. To report to the Police phone 101 or visit a Police Station. In an emergency always call 999.

If you are a student and require any advice or support of how to proceed with the police please contact the Wellbeing Advisors at advice@liverpool.ac.uk or you can phone on 0151 795 1000. If you are a staff member you can contact HR at hr@liverpool.ac.uk or you can phone on 0151 794 6771.
