Hate crime website tackles five-per cent reporting statistic

A website founded in Cambridgeshire is aiming to help decrease the huge number of hate crimes that go under-reported with local police.

Local support scheme Open Out – a third party reporting scheme that offers support, advice and information to the victims and witnesses of hate crime – launched openoutcambs.org in 2001 following the death of Stephen Lawrence, allowing members of the public to report incidents quickly and confidentially in order to access support.

But now they are reminding the public that it can also be used for gay hate crime.

“It is vital that anyone who hasbeen affected by this type of crime can get the help they need. We hope that this new website will make it easier for people to talk about what’s happened and access our service,” says Molly Blackburn, Open Out Co-ordinator.

If you or someone you know may have been affected by Hate Crime visit Open Out’s website: openoutcambs.orgor call: 01223 823553.
