Hate Crime legislation

This training occurs over 2 sessions on 7 December and 14 December, 11am-1pm. You must attend both sessions. The training focuses on current law around hate crime against Disabled people

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:

Each session runs from 11am – 1pm.
