Stop Hate UK Helpline
People in England and Wales who have experienced, witnessed or know someone who is experiencing learning disability hate crime can contact the helpline on 0808 802 1155 for support and information. The helpline is open 24 hours a day, every day of the year. It is free to call from landlines and most mobiles and the number won’t show on a phone bill.
Calls to the helpline will be answered by trained staff and volunteers, who understand the impact hate crime has on victims who have a learning disability. Calls are confidential and callers will be asked whether they need ongoing support. Referrals will be made where consent has been given by the victim.
Stop Hate UK will also follow up with callers and offer additional support, referrals or signposting where appropriate. All incidents will be reported to the local police by Stop Hate UK, either with the victim’s details for investigation purposes if that is what the victim wants, or without the details of the victim for information and monitoring purposes.
