Disability Hate Crimes Rise By 25% Since Last Year, Show Stats

October 13, 2015

Home Office statistics on hate crime, released today, show that recorded disability hate crimes have risen 25% since last year.

Also, 5% of total recorded hate crimes last year were disability hate crimes.

The detailed statistics and explanation of them can be found at the link above. For the stats mentioned here, please see Table 2.

Readers, we cannot stress enough that these stats are based on recorded hate crimes. If you experience disability hate crime and don’t report it to the police, it won’t be included in statistics. So we may never know what the real statistics are.

Please, should you ever experience disability hate crime, report it to the police, or to someone who can go to the police with you.
