What is CATCH?

How can we help?

CATCH is a group of charities working to end hate crime. We're here to give specialist advice and help to people targeted with violence, abuse or harassment because of their race, religion, disability, sexuality or gender identity.

 

CATCH is open to anyone experiencing hate in London.  If you experienced a hate crime elsewhere, you can still get in touch.  

If you need advice, or just want to get something off your chest, you can talk to us. We can:

 

  • provide a safe space to talk
  • explore the options available to you
  • advise on your rights and how to use them
  • support you to report to police if you choose
  • give guidance on applying for financial compensation for victims of crime
  • provide practical advice to make you feel safe
  • help you access other support and services you need, such as counselling or housing.
     

We’ll never pressure you into taking any action you aren’t comfortable with, and we won’t share information about you without your permission.
