Hate Crime Post-Campaign Survey

1. Have you been affected by Hate Crime?

Now that we are nearing the end of the campaign, we would like to ensure the campaign has had an impact, and get a sense of whether awareness has increased and if more people are speaking up about hate crime. The survey will take 5-10 minutes. If you would like any help on filling out the survey then please email Phyllida Swift at phyllidas@changingfaces.org.uk This survey is anonymous, but if you would like us to get in touch, you have the option to leave your email address in the last question. Thank you so much for taking the time to help us. If any of the questions above have upset you at all then please contact Stop Hate Uk, True Vision, Samaritans, or head to https://www.changingfaces.org.uk/campaigns/whatishatecrime to find out more about how to get support. Any of the information you've provided will be treated in the strictest confidence and we will not share your personal details unless you give explicit permission.
