Hate Crime Secondments Project

The Hate Crime Secondment Project provides support with funding applications to set up a hate crime service post secondment, training sessions with staff and trustees and support to set up processes to identify, deal with and record hate crime.

An experienced Hate Crime Advocate is provided 2 days a week via Stay Safe East with management provided by Merton Centre for Independent Living. The project pays the Deaf & Disabled People Organisation hosting the secondment for 14 hours a week to work with the advocate from Stay Safe East, for 6 months with 2 months follow on support so 8 months in total.

Merton CIL are responsible for developing the Deaf & Disabled People Organisation Disability Hate Crime Evaluation & Monitoring Handbook, see link below.
