Hawth to host hate crime awareness event


Victim Support will be holding an all-day event in the new year to raise awareness and understanding of hate crime.

Called Don’t Support It - Report It, the event will be held at The Hawth, Crawley, on Wednesday February 11, from 9.30am-4pm.

A spokesman for Victim Support said the event would include talks from a variety of speakers including Sussex Police and people who had been the victims of hate crime.

It will also include information about some of the trends in hate crime faced by the group.

The spokesman added: “Hate crime is seriously under-reported and we wish to raise awareness of this in order that the victims of such crimes or incidents are aware what can be done if they are targeted and can access support should they require this.”
