Hate Crime – advice, help and support.

Posted: Wed, 21 Apr 2021 13:36 by Loran Stonehouse

Hate crime is crime that the victim or any other person perceives to be motivated by hostility or prejudice towards any aspect of a person's identity.

Six types of Hate Crime

Derbyshire Police monitor six strands of hate crime: More »

  • Disability
  • Gender identity
  • Race, nationality or ethnicity
  • Religion or belief
  • Sexual orientation
  • Subculture eg: Goth, Steampunk, Hipster

Police forces also monitor religiously motivated hate crime specifically related to anti-Semitism and Islamophobia.

Report a Hate Crime

A hate incident is any incident, which may or may not be a crime, that the victim, or any other person, perceives to be motivated by hostility or prejudice towards any aspect of a person's identity. The police determine whether a hate incident is a crime.

Anyone who experiences or hears about a hate crime or hate incident in the District can report it to the Police or to Stop Hate UK. Reports are used to help those victimised, to bring perpetrators to justice, and to influence our work to stop Hate Crime.

Every incident should be reported, whether it is name calling in the street, damage to property, graffiti, physical assault, or any other type of incident that makes someone feel upset at being targeted.

Stop Hate

In Derbyshire, you can get support and report hate incidents to Stop Hate UK(opens in a new window) in a number of ways:

Anyone can report hate crime and access support - victims and witnesses. You can remain anonymous if you wish.

Derbyshire Safe Places Scheme

A safe place is somewhere that people with a learning disability can go if they feel scared, are lost or need help when they are out and about.

Online Hate Material

You may come across a lot of material on the internet that offends you, but very little of it is actually illegal. UK laws are written to make sure that people can speak and write, even offensive material, without being prosecuted for their views.

Community Testing Centre Opens in Dronfield/Derbyshire Testing Sites Offer Free Kits

Community Testing Centre Opens in Dronfield/Derbyshire Testing Sites Offer Free Kits

Posted: Wed, 21 Apr 2021 12:12 by Loran Stonehouse

Community testing for COVID-19

A temporary Covid 19 Community testing centre has been set up at Dronfield Civic Centre rear car park, off Farwater Lane and is open to the public, Monday to Friday from 9am to 3pm and on Saturdays from 9am to 12noon for the next four weeks, until Saturday, May 15. More »

The community testing programme will offer regular testing to those who are at most risk of passing on the virus, which is those who are still going out to work and spend time with colleagues or the public.

One in 3 of those with COVID-19 do not have any symptoms, meaning that they could be passing on the virus to anyone they meet.

The testing will identify people with COVID-19, enable support for those who have to self-isolate, and drive infection rates down further in the county.

Anyone who is concerned they have Covid-19 should not visit community sites but instead book a test in the usual way.

Derbyshire's community testing sites to offer free kits

From the 9th of April 2021 Derbyshire residents have been able to visit their local testing centre to pick up the rapid test kits for them and their families to use at home.

It comes as the government announced that everyone in England can have twice weekly lateral flow tests to control the spread of COVID-19.

Alongside the vaccine rollout, regular testing is at the heart of plans to reopen society and the economy by helping to suppress new variants of the virus and break the chain of transmission.

Rapid testing has so far been available to those most at risk and people who cannot work from home and are mixing with colleagues or the public.

Derbyshire residents will be able to pick up 2 boxes of 7 tests when they visit a community testing centre.

And starting from next week, people will also be able to pick up kits from our mobile testing units between 9am and 3pm:

every Tuesday - Killamarsh Junior Athletics Club car park, 284 Sheffield Rd, Killamarsh, S21 1ED

every Wednesday - Amber Valley Area Office (bottom car park), Cemetery Lane, Ripley, DE5 3HY.

every Thursday - The Agricultural Business Centre (far end of car park), Agricultural Way, Bakewell, DE45 1AH

every Friday - The Arc (right hand side of car park), High St, Clowne, Chesterfield. S43 4JY

Saturday/Sunday - Glossopdale School car park, Newshaw Lane, Hadfield, Glossop SK13 2DA

Supervised testing is still available at our community testing sites where staff are also on hand to offer support and advice to people who test positive.

Rapid testing kits for use at home are also available to order online.

If testing at home, people will need to register their results online or by calling NHS 119. They should self-isolate if positive and order a confirmatory PCR test.

Anyone with symptoms of COVID-19 should isolate immediately. They should not attend a community testing site but should book a test online or by calling NHS 119. » Less
