Who can attend?

This series of online training sessions is aimed at all London Borough DDPOs (staff, volunteers and managers) of any frontline service for Disabled people.

Overview: Two sessions looking at how hate crime against Disabled people can be ignored, the impact minimised and situations misunderstood, and how this impacts a victim or survivor getting support and positive outcomes. Hate crime against Disabled people can often start as anti-social behaviour (ASB) or an adult safeguarding issue and then escalate to serious hate crime. A Disabled person may also not recognise their experience as a hate crime or incident. This training will enable you to recognise and uncover potential hate crime cases, support a Disabled person to lower the risk to themselves, to achieve the outcomes they want, and to challenge decisions made by other services (for example; housing authorities, social services or the police).
