You & Co – you can talk to one of our support workers on a one-to-one basis, and we can offer you help and support, whether or not you decide to report anti-Muslim hate crimes or incidents to police. We can give you advice on how crime can affect you and how to cope with it, what to do and what to expect if you decide to report a crime to police, and how to move on from being a victim of crime. You can find out about the support available nearest to you on this website.
You & Co have developed some resources for your parents to help them understand more about young people and Islamophobia.
