You have a right to report violence and abuse you've experienced as a result of your sexual or gender orientation. When you report hate crimes, you become part of the movement to stop them. No matter how small or trivial you think the incident might be, it is important to the whole community that it is acknowledged and reported.
After the incident, make a note of all the details to make it easier to recall the details again at a later date.
If you are in immediate danger and need police assistance call 999.
In other instances, the police can be contacted on 101.
If you don't feel you're able to speak to the police third-party reporting centres can report on your behalf.
