Community Security Trust (CST), a charity that protects British Jews from antisemitism and Tell MAMA, a national campaign that tackles anti-Muslim hatred produced a useful guide on Hate Crime – A guide for those affected. Both organisations are often the first point of contact for victims and witnesses of antisemitic or anti-Muslim hate crime. CST and Tell MAMA both offer free, confidential support to people affected by hate crimes and hate incidents. The guide’s focus is antisemitism and anti-Muslim hatred. Its advice can, and should, be used by anybody who has suffered any kind of hate crime, which can occur due to race, religion, sexuality, age, disability, gender or any other characteristic.
The guide includes information on Types of hate crime, how to report, your rights in court, restorative justice and support before and after the trial.
