Support for victims of hate crime

All victims of hate crime receive support when a hate crime report is made and we encourage everyone to report a hate crime before receiving this support. Nevertheless, we recognise that in some instances people may wish to not report a hate crime but may still want support. In cases like this, we encourage you to visit Greater Manchester Victims' Service which provides a handy directory of services which you may be interested in accessing- some of which are listed below.
