Hate Crime involves any criminal offence which is perceived by the victim or any other person, to be motivated by hostility or prejudice based on a personal characteristic. Hate crime can be motivated by disability, gender identity, race, religion or faith and sexual orientation. (Home Office Website 26th March 2013)
