Who we are
We are here for you. SARI provides free and confidential support for anyone who is a victim of hate crime across Avon and Somerset. Whether that’s based on race, faith, disability, sexual orientation, transgender identity, age, or sex. We also work to build greater understanding and respect for diversity and difference within our community.
What is hate crime?
If someone is violent or hostile towards you, just because of who you are, who they think you are, or what you believe in, it’s a hate crime. And that’s against the law.
How we can help
If you’ve been a victim of hate crime or want to help someone who has, we’re here to give help, support and advice. Our service is free and completely confidential. And our team speak many different languages – so don’t worry if your English isn’t good.
