Hate Crime advice, assistance and support


0800 2943479   @WLECagainsthate 

The West London Equality Centre (WLEC), formerly, Ealing Equality Council, have a track record in promoting equality by providing legal advice and assistance to the vulnerable and disadvantaged who have been unfairly denied access to justice.  WLEC has recently obtained funding from the Big Lottery Fund specifically to assist victims of Hate Crime in London Borough of Ealing and surrounding areas. 

Hate Crime is an act of hostility against someone because of their race, religious belief, sexual orientation, gender identification, age, or disability.  Hate motivated incidents and crimes are abhorrent and represent a direct attack on the right of everyone to live without fear of harassment and violence because of who they are. 

WLEC assists victims of Hate Crime to understand and deal with the criminal justice system and to enforce their right to a safe environment.  Our service is confidential and based on respect for our clients who require support and understanding in often traumatic circumstances.  Our advice is holistic because we have expertise in many other areas of law which victims of hate crime may also need to access because of the way they have been treated. 

Call us on 0800 2943479 or leave a message, and we will get back to you within 24 hours with an appointment time.  Please tell us how you would like to be contacted if do not wish us to contact you by telephone.
