We have worked with Police and other partner agencies to make our offices at Commutation Plaza, Liverpool and St Chads, Oldham, third-party reporting centres for hate crime.
Third party reporting centres offer a safe place for people, whether victims or witnesses, to report hate crime, be listened to in confidence and then encouraged and supported to contact 'Stop Hate UK'. They give victims or witnesses of hate crime, who lack the confidence to go directly to the police, an alternative method of reporting.
Commutation Plaza is in a prime, City Centre location, ideally placed and accessible. St Chads is located within the heart of the Limehurst estate in Oldham.
Hate crime is any criminal offence which is perceived, by the victim or any other person, to be motivated by hostility or prejudice based on a personal characteristic.
Anybody wishing to report hate crime can use our facilities to access phones or computers and have a confidential conversation with Stop Hate UK.
Various Regenda staff at both offices are fully briefed on the procedure, while there is also an appointed Safeguarding Officer available for any further questions.
Stop Hate is a commissioned service paid for by the OPCC that gives victims or witnesses of hate crime, who lack the confidence to go directly to the police, an alternative method of reporting.
