Redbridge people urged to report hate crimes
Redbridge is marking International Day against Homophobia and Transphobia (IDAHO) today by giving advice to residents and holding a school workshop.
As part of the day, people living and working in the borough are being encouraged to report any hate crimes and harassment they may encounter.
The Redbridge safer communities partnership is also reminding members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) communities not to put up with homophobic and transphobic crimes and harassment.
The partnership is keen more people come forward and report any abuse they have suffered.
Residents can report hate crimes to Redbridge Council’s dedicated antisocial behaviour team by phoning 020 8478 4679.

Today, LGBT liaison officers will be handing out information and advice in “target areas” and holding an education workshop for schoolchildren in the borough.
