Hate Crime Data and Insights

From 2021 to 2023, the London DDPO HC Partnership had a dedicated Hate Crime Data & Insight Officer based at Inclusion London leading on the Hate Crime Deaf & Disabled People Organisations Data Collation Project, working with key Deaf & Disabled People Organisation members of the hate crime partnership, based across London to provide qualitative and quantitative data on the work of Deaf & Disabled Peoples’ Organisations, specifically looking at the reasons for the disparity between official reports to the Metropolitan Police and the work provided to victims of hate crime by Deaf & Disabled Peoples Organisations.

The Hate Crime Data & Insight Officer also worked for the partnership to collect data and insights across multiple sources, to uncover hidden hate crime; in the media, serious case reviews, safeguarding adults and anti-social behaviour reports.

From 2023, Inclusion London now have a centralised Data and Insight Officer, who supports the overall work of Inclusion London, including all current projects.
