Title: Disability Safety Hub Launched to Tackle Hate Crime
The Disability Safety Hub is a website aimed at disabled people to help them to identify hate crime and help them to report it.
This website wants to show the different ways that disabled people can report a hate crime. The website contains videos, case studies and useful numbers and contacts to help disabled people find the information they need.
Emma Scott, the Equality Projects Manager at Disability Equality Scotland said “Too many disabled people face victimisation and harassment and this website is intended to help disabled people recognise incidents of hate crime as just that – a crime. Too often we hear from disabled people who brush these incidents off as “banter” and they shouldn’t have to put up with this. They can and should report it and the Disability Safety Hub offers support to help them do this.”
The website will be kept up to date with resources and case studies so if anyone has anything they would like to be shared on the website they are encouraged to get in touch with Disability Equality Scotland.
Your feedback is vital in the development of this Hub, to ensure that disabled people are able to access up-to-date resources and case studies.
