Stockport Partnership Team (Greater Manchester Police) supports LGBT+ PLUS and the wider community to reduce hate crime within our local area..
"Any incident, which may or may not constitute a criminal offence, which is perceived by the victim or any other person, as being motivated by prejudice or hate towards the victim because of their race, religion, sexual orientation, gender or the fact they have a disability."
There does not have to be evidence to suggest the motivation, the fact that the you feel it is motivated in this way is sufficient for the police to deal with, and record the incident as a hate crime. Hate incidents and crimes have a damaging effect on communities and need to be reported in order that the police and their partner agencies can protect other members of the community who may be targeted in this way.
