Report a hate crime
When reporting a hate crime you should:
- remember no incident is too small to report,
- report it as soon as possible,
- write down everything that happened during the incident including time, date and place,
- not touch anything that may be classed as evidence, such as weapons used, etc,

What action will be taken
Reports are taken extremely seriously and in the strictest confidence and if you prefer your report can be kept anonymous and you will not be asked for any personal details. However the multi-agency approach adopted by Bury means that a hate crime reporting centre will send copies of the report to:
- The victim reporting the hate crime
- The Police, for action to be taken, with your consent, against the perpetrators
- Any other support agency involved
