I hope that this email finds you, your family and friends well in these difficult times.
I am writing to you from Greenwich Inclusion Project, a community- led charitable organisation commissioned by Royal Greenwich to deliver a range of services, one of which is a hate crime service for peoplethat live, work, study or visit the borough
During these weeks of, self isolating, social distancing and restricted travel, its possible that tensions between neighbours and other parties may escalate; therefore, it’s important to remain vigilant when vulnerability for many may increase despite reduced social contact.

The Royal Borough also commissionsthree charities that support victims of hate crime and raises awareness of how to report, and the impact of hate crime. We can provide information about personal safety and help victims work with the police and other organisations.
