In these two 2-hour training sessions, we will look at how hate crime and discrimination affects Deaf & Disabled children and young people, and how best to support young victims of hate crime.
Online Hate Crime Training – Children, Young People and Hate Crime
14th September 2022, 11 am to 1 pm, and 21st September 11 am to 1 pm, via Zoom
You should attend both sessions. You only need to book once, but by signing up you are agreeing to attend both sessions.
This online series of hate crime training is free to all DDPO staff and volunteers and will cover a range of topics. Other, upcoming, training sessions include ‘Intersectionality and Hate Crime‘ and ‘What to do when the law isn’t working‘.
In these two sessions on ‘Children, Young People and Hate Crime’, we will take a look at hate crime and discrimination in relation to Deaf & disabled children and young people. We will look at hate crime in schools and in public settings, how advocating for young people is different from other forms of advocacy, and how to defend young people’s rights.
How to book
To book a place, please click on the ‘Book your free ticket‘ button above or fill out the form directly below this post once you have finished reading. We will then confirm your booking and email you details of how to join the Zoom meeting.
This training takes place over 2 sessions. Part 1 is on Wednesday 14th September and Part 2 is on Wednesday 21st September.
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.
- Recognise different forms hate crime can take for young people, and the spaces it can happen in
- Learn how to advocate for young people in age-appropriate ways
- Explore the barriers young disabled people can face getting justice
- Discuss ways of taking action
What is a DDPO?
Please note this is a free event for Deaf and Disabled People Organisations (DDPOs) staff and volunteers. DDPOs are organisations that are run and controlled by Deaf/Disabled people, with Deaf/Disabled people representing at least 75% of Trustees and over 50% of paid staff.
After the session you will be given a link to a feedback form. Please complete it on the day if possible. Your feedback is required so that we can monitor and develop our training offer and to report to our funders.
Please inform us of any access requirements at least 2 weeks in advance of the training
