SUFFOLK Racial Harassment Initiative has issued a new leaflet offering help and advice to victims of racial harassment.

The leaflet is designed to encourage anyone suffering racial harassment to report it and explains how they can get help.

The new leaflet has been funded by Suffolk County Council and the seven district and borough councils. It is being widely circulated across Suffolk and will be sent to statutory, voluntary and community organisations such as schools, community organisations and the police.

Peter Monk, member of Suffolk County Council's executive committee, said: "These leaflets explain what racial harassment is and how to get help if you're a victim. Racial harassment isn't acceptable and these leaflets aim to make it easier for people to put a stop to it."

The Suffolk Racial Harassment Initiative is based at County Hall in Ipswich. The initiative was set up in 1998 to combat racial harassment, to increase awareness of the issue and to make it easier for victims to come forward.

Copies of the leaflet are available from the Racial Harassment Initiative on 01473 584591.
