A NEW Third Party Scheme will make it easier for people in Kincardine to blow the whistle on hate crime.

The national scheme, "Third Party Reporting", intends to encourage victims of hate crime to come forward through a "victim-centered approach".

It is hoped that the scheme will bridge the gap between the victim and the Police.

Victims can submit an anonymous online form which is sent on their behalf to the Police.

Twenty different organisations from across Fife have agreed to take on this additional role.

Anna Rolink, Team Leader, at the Scottish Association for Mental Health's Going Forth service who recently attended training said, "One of our clients, who in the past would have been reluctant to contact the Police, has successfully reported being the victim of hate crime using Going Forth as a Third Party reporting centre.

"As a result of this support, the individual feels safer in the community and their view towards the Police has changed completely."

Superintendent Dougie Milton, chair of Fife Community Safety Partnership, said, "We are delighted at the enthusiasm of the staff who have attended the training and feel with their support we can encourage more people to report to us."
