Last week (4-10 February) was Greater Manchester Hate Crime awareness week. 

Throughout the week S4B staff, Brunswick community groups and local children got involved in series of activities to support the campaign. Children from across the community made peace brooches at Brunswick Youth Club and community groups met at the S4B housing office to make peace brooches and friendship bracelets.

On Wednesday (6 February) the S4B housing office was officially named as a 3rd Party reporting centre. If you, or anyone you know, is suffering any form of hate crime, it can be reported at the S4B housing office, 15 Brunswick Street, M13 9SU in private and in total confidence.

Hate crime is any crime targeted at a person because of hostility or prejudice towards their:

  • Disability
  • Race
  • Religion or belief
  • Sexual orientation
  • Alternative subculture
  • Trans and gender reassignment

No hate crime is acceptable. We all have a right to live without fear, hostility and intimidation from others because of who we are. We all have a responsibility to stand against hatred and discrimination. #WeStandTogether
