A racial incident phone line has been extended to another area of Kent after recommendations made in a report into the death of Stephen Lawrence.
Stephen Lawrence was murdered in south London in April 1993
A line was set up in Thanet and Dover in 2002 as another way of reporting incidents other than to the police.
A year later Shepway joined the scheme which has now been extended to Canterbury and Ashford.
The line was set up in the wake of the McPherson report into the death of the black teenager who was killed in 1993.
The scheme is intended to reach minority groups in the areas it covers.
It offers a confidential service to anyone regardless of colour or creed who has experienced any form of race crime.
Insp Mark Nottage, from Weald Police, said: "This is an excellent opportunity to continue to build bridges with minority groups within the community."
The phone number is advertised in community areas such as health clinics, police stations and doctors' surgeries.
The 24-hour recording service is available in the 10 most common languages used in east Kent with callers asked to leave their contact details.
Messages are recorded, translated if necessary and then details are forwarded to the agency which can best help.
