Stop Hate UK

Stop Hate UK is one of the leading national organisations working to challenge all forms of Hate Crime and discrimination, based on any aspect of an individual’s identity. Stop Hate UK provides independent, confidential and accessible reporting and support for victims, witnesses and third parties.

The organisation started life in 1995 as a service for victims of racial harassment. The project was established in direct response to the murder of Stephen Lawrence. In 2006 they launched the Stop Hate Line to respond to Recommendation 16 of The Stephen Lawrence Inquiry. They re-launched as Stop Hate UK in 2007 to reflect the wider remit of supporting people affected by all forms of Hate Crime in locations across the UK. 

Stop Hate UK works alongside local strategic partnerships to tackle Hate Crime and discrimination, encourage reporting and support the individuals and communities it affects. Their helplines enable people to access independent support and information, 24 hours a day, every day of the year.

In 2013 they launched the Stop Learning Disability Hate Crime Line, a service for England and Wales, which was funded by the Ministry of Justice. The Stop Learning Disability Hate Crime Line provides support to people affected by Learning Disability Hate Crime, whether as a victim, a witness or third party within the areas where we are commissioned.

In January 2015, the Stop Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Hate Crime Line, funded by the Equality and Human Rights Commission, was launched across England, Scotland and Wales. The  LGBT* line provides information, advice, support and telephone-based advocacy to LGBT* people who are experiencing Hate Crime or incidents as a result of their identity or perceived identity. Witnesses of incidents can also report and receive support via the helpline.
