DASL is working with We are 336, other local disability and mental health groups, Victim Support, Lambeth Council and the Metropolitan Police to raise awareness of hate crime against disabled people and improve the support available to people who experience it.

On behalf of the Partnership, DASL is managing a one year grant from the Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime to raise awareness of hate crime against Disabled people and provide advocacy to individuals who have experienced this. Our Hate Crime Advocate and Outreach Worker (Disabled People), is Cheryl Lewis.

Lambeth Disability Hate Crime Policy Forum June 2018

In June 2018 the Partnership brought together professionals from Lambeth Council, the Metropolitan Police, the Home Office, the Mayor of London’s Office for Policing and Crime, Disabled People’s Organisations and the Lambeth voluntary sector to explore the issues, identify solutions and make recommendations for how agencies could work together to raise awareness of hate crime and build better support for Disabled people who experience it.
