Understanding Experiences of Hate Crime

Yorkshire MESMAC are teaming up with NatCen Social Research in order to conduct a study into experiences of hate crime.

NatCen Social Research is carrying out a study to explore people’s views and experiences of hate crime, motivations and barriers to reporting it, and interactions with the police and/or support organisations in relation to these experiences.

We have been asked to do this research to enhance understanding of people’s recent experiences of hate
crime, including any experiences with support services, the police, and other criminal justice organisations.
We are interested in all experiences of hate crime, including:

  • incidents related to race, religion, sexual orientation, disability, transgender identity
  • incidents related to other personal characteristics such as age, gender, or being part of an alternative subculture
  • physical, verbal, and online incidents of hate crime.

We would like to talk to you if you've experienced or reported a hate crime or hate-related incident since January 2017 in West Yorkshire.

If you take part, we can offer you £20 for travel and expenses.
