Hate incidents and anti-social behaviour

At the Partnership Community Safety Team, we support & advise people who experience harassment, victimisation, intimidation or abuse because of their race, faith, religion, disability or because they are lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender.

You can find more information and ways to report hate incidents on the specific pages below:

Anti-social behaviour is behaviour that causes alarm, distress harassment to you or your family. Examples include noise nuisance, violence, abuse, harassment, threats and intimidation, and criminal activity.

In Brighton & Hove, there is a Casework Team to tackle these problems. The role of the team is to work with victims, witnesses and communities to tackle, prevent and reduce the harm caused by hate crimes, hate incidents and anti-social behaviour. 

If you would like to report anti-social behaviour or hate crime, please use our online form, call 01273 292735 or email communitysafety.casework@brighton-hove.gov.uk.
