Thu, 19 Sep10:05 AM - 10:50 AMPlenary Session: Hate Crime – A Life Without Fear Keynote
Experiencing hate crimes can be a particularly frightening experience as the victim has been targeted because of who they are. The aim of this session is to help staff working with people with learning disabilities, mental health needs, autism, and physical disabilities to recognise whether they are, or have been a victim of hate crime and if so, how to best report it and provide guidance on how people supporting a victim can advocate on the person’s behalf.This important session will be led by Joanne Silkstone, North East and Yorkshire Learning and Development Manager for United Response, and Kevin Brighton, West Yorkshire Police Hate Crime Coordinator. They will discuss how to improve staff awareness of what constitutes a hate crime or hate incident by identifying and acting on the early indicators of repeat victimisation, whilst providing the staff and people they support with the knowledge of how they can report such incidents to the police or internally. They will also share the necessary tools for staff on how to act on hate crime quickly.
