Reporting A Hate-Crime


If you have experienced a hate-crime there are a number of options available to you in terms of reporting and support. 

Challenge North Staffs is a hate-crime reporting and support service for anyone who lives in the North Staffordshire area (Newcastle-under-Lyme, Stoke-on-Trent & the Staffordshire Moorlands) and has been affected by a hate crime or hate incident. The service is available to you whether you're on campus, at home, out shopping or on holiday. Wherever the incident occurs Challenge North Staffs are there to help, 24 hours a day.


Why Should You Report?


It helps us help you: through guiding you to relevant support networks, and putting in place support, we can help see that this experience doesn't jeopardise your education and life.

It helps others: Reporting an incident can help us prevent future incidents happening at Keele. It shows us where we need to make targeted improvements, educate our community on issues, and change policy. Reporting will help the wider Keele community in having a safer experience.
