Disability Hate Crime

Disability Hate Crime

Hate Crime against disabled people is a growing problem but very few crimes and other incidents are reported. Disabled people often don't know who to talk to or how to report something that has happened to them.

Since April 2016, DASL has been providing a Hate Crime Advocacy and Outreach service through which we hope many more disabled people in Lambeth will get the support they need to deal with hate crime and to report it if they wish to do so.  We also want to raise awareness of hate crime against disabled people in the community and to work alongside disabled people to find ways of preventing this happening.

We are working on this service with other organisations which also want to change things for the better through the Lambeth Disability Hate Crime Partnership.
