A hate crime is any criminal offence or incident which is perceived by the victim, or any other person as being motivated by prejudice or hate, based on a person’s real or perceived race, religious belief, sexual orientation, disability or transgender identity.

Hate crimes statistics across the UK are shocking, with a total of 52,028 crimes recorded in 2009 in which the offence was motivated by prejudice. These crimes can have a far more serious psychological effect on the victims and the communities they represent than many other crimes.
