brap offers a free, confidential support service for anyone who has been the victim of a hate crime because of their race, religion, or belief.
We offer practical and emotional support. This means we can help you:
- understand whether or not you've been the victim of a hate crime
- choose the best place to report the incident (if you want to)
- deal with any practical issues arising from the incident
We're also here if you'd just like to get something off your chest or chat to someone over a cup of tea.
What is a hate crime?
If you're wondering whether or not you've been the victim of a hate crime, feel free to contact us for a chat. Alternatively, there's a great explanation of what hate crime is on Citizens Advice's website here. This video from Facing Facts! is also pretty informative.
How to contact us
You can call or text us on 07722 646 173. Alternately, the brap cave is open every Tuesday between 10am and 6pm for anyone who wants to pop in. Address details are here.
