How can we help?

What is CATCH?

The Community Alliance To Combat Hate (CATCH) is a way for people who have experienced hate to get the maximum amount of help with a minimum amount of hassle.


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.
