Free online Anti-Hate Crime Training for DDPOs
This online training series is free to all DDPO staff and volunteers.
As a London DDPO, you do not have to run a dedicated Hate Crime Service to encounter potential hate crime cases. A Disabled person may not contact you and directly ask for help with a hate crime issue. In fact, it is common for a Disabled person to not recognise what they are experiencing as a hate crime and instead access services to address the consequences, rather than the cause of the hate crime.
This series of six online training sessions is aimed at all London Borough DDPOs (staff, volunteers and managers) of any frontline service for Disabled people.
The ongoing free series covers an additional three topics this year:
- Uncovering hidden hate – 22 June and 29 June
- Advocacy skills: dealing with hate crime casework – 21 September and 28 September
- Hate Crime Legislation – 7 December and 14 December
Each session runs from 11am – 1pm.
