We work closely with dedicated Hate Crime Advocates who are independent from the police and can provide specialist advice, information and support to victims of hate crime. The hate crime advocacy service provides for victims of Racist, LGB&T and Disability hate crime.
Specialist advocates within independent community organisations can assist victims of hate crime to access services, provide support, guidance and be the voice of the victim. Please take a moment to view the video message from Katie Johnson, the Victim Support NI Hate Crime Advocate Coordinator who explains about the benefits of the service.
