Hate Crime Support & Action

Third Party Reporting Centre

The two Hate Crime Case Workers Lynda Myles and Julie Naylor based at DENW have relocated to Lancashire Victim Service from 29th May but will continue to support victims of hate crime across Preston and Lancashire.

DENW Third Party Reporting Centre status remains unchanged and victims can still report hate crimes at our office on Church Street. We will continue to help victims report incidents to the police and refer people on to the support Lancashire Victim Support can provide.

We will miss Lynda and Julie being around at DENW but we are happy that victims of hate crime will still get support from two fabulous Case Workers.

or ring Careline 0300 323 0085 or 24 hour helpline 0808 1689111
