Two sessions focusing on hate crime against Disabled people when using public transport.
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:
- Intersectionality – 12 January and 28 January
- Hidden in Plain Sight – 2 February and 18 February
- Transport for All? – 2 March and 16 March
Transport for All? Public transport and hate crime against Disabled people
This training takes place over 2 sessions. Part 1 is on Tuesday 2nd March and Part 2 is on Tuesday 16th March.
You should attend both sessions.
Times for both sessions: 11am to 1pm, with regular breaks. Fully accessible, with BSL interpreters, captioning and palantypist
Overview: Two sessions focusing on hate crime against Disabled people when using public transport. Public transport is one of the most common public spaces where hate crime occurs. You will learn about the different ways evidence is gathered to support a case, how to challenge decisions made by other services, the role of transport providers and the British Transport Police.
