Raising awareness of hate crime

The Things Tae Dae Social Hub performed a powerful drama about hate crime this week at Cumnock Town Hall.

The hub has been working alongside Police Scotland and the Adult Support Protection Team for over a year to promote a new initiative called ‘Hate crime/keep safe’.

The drama focused on one of the hub member’s stories about their experience of hate crime which made the drama particularly thought provoking.

The Things Tae Dae Social Hub has been actively involved with the East Ayrshire Keep Safe Implementation Group and is supported by the Adult Protection Committee. They speak on behalf of others with learning disabilities in our communities and help to spread the national Adult Protection message: ‘Seen something, say something’.

Depute Provost Claire Leitch was invited to attend the event, her first in her new role. She said: “I know that the Things Tae Dae group has worked incredibly hard on this production and that it’s been an emotional and very positive journey for everyone involved. The actors showed great strength in telling their stories in order to raise awareness of hate crime and they should all be very proud of what they have achieved.”

Thanks go to Cumnock Cares for supporting this very worthwhile project.
