National Hate Crime Awareness Week 2018 runs from 13th – 20th October.

This event, organised by DASL with the Lambeth Disability Hate Crime Partnership, is aimed at Disabled people, their families and carers and local service providers including Council and Health staff, Police, Housing Officers and other agencies. It’s for anyone who wants to know more about identifying and reporting hate incidents and crime and how to get support if you or someone you know is a Disabled person who is a victim of a hate crime..

Disability Hate Crime is often mistaken for anti-social behaviour or low level harassment when being reported. Without knowing how to recognise Disability Hate Crime and how to report it, people continue to suffer, sometimes with tragic consequences.
