About Us

We are a service that provides support, mediation, and awareness of Hate Crime.

Who we are

We are here to help.

Bedfordshire’s CommUNITY Meditation Service has been set up to support victims of Hate Crime across Luton, Bedford and Central Bedfordshire. The service aims to reduce Hate Crime and increase the report rates across these three locations.

We tackle this using a variety of different methods.

1-2-1 Chatline:
  • The chatline is accessible to the community via the Bedfordshire CommUNITY Mediation Service website and will be open Monday to Thursday 9 am till 5 pm and on Friday from 9 am till 4pm.
  • An initial assessment will take place when contacting the chat line to see what support the individual needs.
  • If you choose to report a hate crime, you will be supported throughout the whole process of reporting.
  • Additional face-to-face appointments can be booked through the chat line.
1-2-1 Reporting Support:
  • You can access 1-2-1 support through the chatline or pre-book face-to-face meetings.
  • If something is not covered in the support we provide we can signpost individuals to external support services.
Mediation Service:
  • We also provide a mediation service across Luton, Bedford, and Central Bedfordshire.
  • We work with the community and local police to gain a better understanding of the barriers faced when reporting hate crimes.
  • Once individual barriers are identified additional support will be put in place to tackle these barriers.
