Keys To Life – Support to Report Hate Crime Project

The Advocacy Project were pleased to receive funding from the Scottish Government’s  Keys to Life Development Fund for our ‘Support to Report Project’. Disability Hate Crime is dangerous and unacceptable. We know that there is a lot of hate crime that is targeted at people with disabilities that goes unreported. Police Scotland are keen to encourage people to report disability hate crime so they can tackle this problem. Our Support to Report group are coming to 3rd Party Reporting Centres across Greater Glasgow and Lanarkshire to talk about Disability Hate Crime and how to best support someone if they want to report an incident to the police. If your organisation is a 3rd Party Reporting Centre and you would like us to come along to talk to staff or volunteers, just give Michelle or Ann a phone on 0141 420 0961.
