Hate Crime Conference 2014

East Ayrshire Adult Protection Unit commissioned The Scottish Consortium for Learning Disabilities to deliver a conference on Disability Hate Crimes.

Everyone attending learned what constitues a hate crime and how to report it and also received an 'Easy Read guide to Disability Hate Crime' produced by Central Advocacy Partners.

Police Scotland informed delegates about Third Party Reporting, what it means and where it was available which is covered in more detail here.

When we have studied the conference evaluations, a small group of those involved will be brought together to discuss any issues raised and to look at any practical steps that can be taken to assist those that are experiencing hate crimes and ensure that those who carry out hate crimes are reported to the police.
