Real Action Against Disability Hate Crime

The project is funded for two years by Trust for London. We currently have six months funding left.

The primary aim of the project is to set up Jack Dash House as a assisted Disability Hate Crime Reporting Centre and develop Disability Hate Crime Workshops that we can deliver to (a) communities affected by disability hate crime and (b) organisations/front line staff. If you are interested in attending one of these workshops please contact Wendy via the email below.

Disability Hate Crime Roundtables

We are planning to hold/host three meetings per year – to bring key partners from across London together in Tower Hamlets.

The aim of these meetings is to share news and information updates from across the Disability Hate Crime sector, to share best practice and to share experiences and examples of what projects people are delivering.

Work that is being done across London – to strengthen the bonds between partners and share ideas and best practice and ideas.

We also want to make our meetings accessible to local people living with disabilities in Tower Hamlets – which is why our meetings are open to members of our Local Voices Network.

We currently have no funding to deliver these meetings.

17-24-30 is providing some funding for light refreshments.

 

We aim these round tables to take place every four months (February, June and October);

We will focus on Disability Hate Crime throughout the year, but touch on the other strands; LGBT to tie in with LGBT History Month in February, Faith issues in June, and Race Issues in October to tie in with Black History Month.

  • February 22 – LGBT issues – #NHCAW RECAP/Strategy Year Ahead
  • June 21 – FAITH Issue – DHC Resource Development
  • October 11 – RACE Issues – Thursday before #NHCAW as we expect everyone will be busy during NHCAW.

We will also encourage participants to collaborate in the development of an annual plan of action;

Reviewing the year in February and making plans for the year ahead, resources development in June,and tying in with National Hate Crime Awareness Week #NHCAW in October.
