This type of help is sometimes called mutual aid. The list of groups is being regularly updated and you can find a list of support available at https://covidmutualaid.org

WHAT IS HATE CRIME?


Hate crimes are acts of violence or hostility directed at people because of who they are or who

someone thinks they are. Hate crimes can take many different forms – for example someone may have

damaged your property because of the colour of your skin, sent you offensive letters because of what

you believe, or behaved violently towards you because of who you love. No hate crime is acceptable.

We all have a right to live without fear, hostility and intimidation from others.

You don't have to be a victim to report hate crime. Witnesses can report too. Call Greater Manchester

Police on '101' or visit www.letsendhatecrime.com In an emergency dial 999
