Stop Hate UK

Stop Hate UK works alongside local strategic partners to tackle Hate Crime and discrimination. We provide a toolkit to compliment and improve local responses to Hate Crime and an alternative for people who do not wish to report Hate Crime to the police or other statutory agencies. Our Helplines enable people to access independent support and information, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Our Patron is Baroness Doreen Lawrence of Clarendon OBE, of Clarendon in the Commonwealth Realm of Jamaica.

Stop Hate UK started life as the Leeds Racial Harassment Project in 1995 as a service for victims of racial harassment. The project was established as a direct response to the murder of Stephen Lawrence.

In 2006 we launched the Stop Hate Line 24/7 independent reporting service to offer a response to Recommendation 16 of the Stephen Lawrence Enquiry.

In 2007 the organisation was re-launched as Stop Hate UK to reflect our wider remit of supporting people affected by all forms of Hostility in locations across the UK. Since then we have developed our Stop Hate Line service to be accessible in a range of user friendly options. We have additionally launched 2 complimentary helplines to meet the specific needs of the Learning Disability and LGB & T communities when they are affected by hostility, discrimination and Hate Crime.

At Stop Hate UK we produce a range of promotional items to increase awareness of Hate Crime and encourage it's reporting. This includes posters, leaflets, booklets, DVD's etc. These resources provide campaign resources to aid partners to increase awareness of services within their local communities.

Stop Hate UK have extensive experience of delivering a range of awareness and training sessions to delegates from Statutory, Non Statutory, Community and 3rd Sector organisations. Sessions provide delegates with the understanding and skills they need to provide effective support to victims of Hate Crime. sessions are delivered in a range of interactive formats making sessions informative, engaging and relevant to delegates.

Stop Hate UK work with strategic partners at local, regional and national levels to ensure the needs of victims of Hate Crime are considered when developing policies and services to support victims and tackle Hate Crime. We also support the work of partners to increase awareness of campaigns such as Hate Crime Awareness Week.
