Report a hate crime

What a hate crime is and how to report one.

A hate crime is any incident which the victim, or anyone else, thinks is based on someone’s prejudice towards them, because of their:

  • race
  • religion
  • sexual orientation
  • gender
  • disability.

Not all hate incidents will amount to criminal offences, but it is equally important that they are reported and recorded.

If you experience or witness a hate crime in Lambeth report it to the Police on 999 or 101, depending on how urgent you consider it to be, or use our online form.
