Who We Are

Our intention is to inform people of racist, homophobic, religious extreme hate speech perpetrators across social networking internet sites. And we also aim to be a focal point for people to access information and resources to report such perpetrators to appropriate web sites, governmental departments and law enforcement agencies around the world.

We will also post relevant news worthy items and information on Human rights issues, racism, extremist individuals and groups and far right political parties from around the world although predominantly Britain.

Victims of hate crime given chance to speak (UK)

Victims of hate crime in Preston will be able to report incidents without visiting a police station from tomorrow.
The new system means people will be able to speak to a number of agencies including disability groups, charities and registered social landlords as an alternative to the police.

Among those taking part are Disability Equality NW, Moor Lane Resource Centre, PUKAR (from October), Centre for Independent Living, Community Gateway, Integrate and Help Direct.

Staff have been trained to help people complete a form which is then forwarded to the police.

PC Stuart Rutlidge, from the diversity unit, said: “It is essential that victims of hate crime or incidents report them so that we can build up a clear picture of what is happening in our local communities.

“If this type of independent reporting assists people to come forward, then that can only be a good thing.”

Incidents can also be reported in confidence by downloading the form directly from the Lancashire Police website.
