Hate crime is on the increase in all walks of lives, in cities and rural areas, schools, and work places. It affects young and old equally.

Many victims of and/or witnesses of a hate crime or incident do not feel comfortable reporting the matter directly to the police and may be happier reporting it to someone they are familiar with. To ensure all victims or witnesses are able to report hate crimes, Lancashire Police works in partnership with a wide support network who perform the role of Third Party Reporting Centres. Staff within Third Party Reporting Centres have been trained to assist a victim or witness in submitting a report to the police and can make sure a report on the victim or witnesses behalf.

AROOJ is a Third-Party Reporting Centre. Please contact us if you need any further information or support on how to report a hate crime or incident.
