Hidden in Plain Sight – how to recognise Hate Crime – 2 February and 18 February

This training occurs over 2 sessions on 2 February and 18 February, 11am-1pm. You must attend both sessions. The training looks at how hate crime against Disabled people can be ignored, the impact minimised and situations misunderstood.

Free online Anti-Hate Crime Training for DDPOs

This online training series is free to all DDPO staff and volunteers, funded by Three Guinea’s Trust and Trust for London.

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 free series covers three topics this year:

Each session runs from 11am – 1pm.


Hidden in Plain sight – how to recognise Hate Crime

This training takes place over 2 sessions. Part 1 is on Tuesday 2nd February and Part 2 is on Thursday 18th February.
Times for both sessions: 11am to 1pm, with regular breaks. Fully accessible, with BSL interpreters, captioning and palantypist.

You should attend both sessions. You only need to book once, but by signing up you are agreeing to attend both sessions. 

Overview: Two sessions looking at how hate crime against Disabled people can be ignored, the impact minimised and situations misunderstood, and how this impacts a victim or survivor getting support and positive outcomes. Hate crime against Disabled people can often start as anti-social behaviour (ASB) or an adult safeguarding issue and then escalate to serious hate crime. A Disabled person may also not recognise their experience as a hate crime or incident. This training will enable you to recognise and uncover potential hate crime cases, support a Disabled person to lower the risk to themselves, to achieve the outcomes they want, and to challenge decisions made by other services (for example; housing authorities, social services or the police).  

Aims: 

Part one 2 February, 11am – 1pm

  1. To understand hate crime against Disabled people  and its prevalence
  2. To understand the barriers to disclosing and reporting hate crimes experienced by Disabled people.

Part two – 18 February, 11am – 1pm

  1. To be able to uncover hate crimes disguised as ASB, safeguarding or bullying in your referrals and caseloads.
  2. To effectively support and empower Disabled Hate crime victims/survivors to achieve the best possible outcomes
