Bristol Hate Crime & Discrimination Services are a group of six partner organisations brought together to provide a complete service for victims of hate crime in Bristol. It is led by SARI (Stand Against Racism & Inequality), together with Bristol Mind, Brandon Trust, LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender) Bristol, the Avon and Bristol Law Centre, and Bristol Mediation.
The new service aims to build on the success of the former Bristol Hate Crime Services (BHCS) partnership, made of SARI, Bristol Mind, Brandon Trust, and LGBT Bristol. The partnership provided casework support for victims of hate crime. It also gave advice, training and education to local agencies.
With the addition of Avon and Bristol Law Centre and Bristol Mediation, victims and agencies will now be able to access a wider range of services to support them in a more holistic manner, including (but not limited to), hate crime advocacy and casework, discrimination legal casework or advice, mediation, conflict resolution and restorative approaches, and other support services.
