During these two 2-hour sessions, we will explore other ways of supporting Deaf & Disabled victims of hate crime when the law is not working or victims do not want involvement from the criminal justice system.
Online Hate Crime Training – What to do when the law isn’t working.
15th March 2023, 11 am to 1 pm, and 22nd March 2023, 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 ‘Children, Young People, and Hate Crime’ and ‘Intersectionality and Hate Crime’.
This training includes two modules looking at other ways of supporting Deaf & Disabled victims of hate crime when the law is not working. We will cover hate crime in different settings, holistic support, and working with other services to provide ongoing support.
How to book

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.
- Understand the current weakness in hate crime law
- Look at alternative forms of justice for victims
- Know how to build effective, holistic support for clients
- Know how to signpost and work with other services
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
