Support to Report: Don’t Stay Silent About Hate Crime

One in four disabled people were victims of hate crime last year, yet it is still massively under reported to the police. A group of people with learning disabilities, from across the West of Scotland have come together to encourage people to report disability hate crime. They have been working with The Advocacy Project and Police Scotland to raise awareness of disability hate crime and Third Party Reporting.

Over the past year, the group have been delivering workshops they devised themselves to raise awareness of disability hate crime, the support people with learning disability may need to report an incident and the different ways it can be reported. The group have made a short film which looks at these issues. Now they want to use this film to spread the word further.

“We want learning disability hate crime to stop!”          


The Advocacy Project will be hosting the launch of the film:

When: 19th May 2017 at 2pm
