Isle of Wight hosts National Pride

Hate crime leaflet, pride flag and logo bugs on a table

The Isle of Wight was proud to host the National Pride event on 21stJuly 2018. The event was held in Ryde along the seafront and included a colourful parade through the town, information stalls, support services and a party lasting into the evening.

We were thrilled to be a part of the event which helped raise awareness of the thriving LGBT+ community situated on the island.

At the event The Victim Care Service worked alongside the Police and Crime Commissioner, Citizens Advice, The Youth Commission and Restorative Solutions to provide event attendees the chance to report Hate Crimes through the Third Party Reporting Centre available on the day.

Hate Crimes can be reported through Third Party Reporting Centres, if you are not comfortable going directly to the Police, at number of locations throughout Hampshire and Isle of Wight; including our office locations, where we can assist you in reporting (anonymously if you wish) as well as providing you with support should you want to take this up.
