Would you know what to do if you witnessed evidence of a disability hate incident or crime? Join us on the 4th November 2010 at St James Park, Newcastle to find out how to prevent and protect disabled people.
The high profile tragic deaths of David Askew, Fiona and Frankie Pilkington are the latest cases to highlight the current problems in tackling disability hate crime.
Questions are now being asked as to how we can all prevent disability hate crime and also protect those at most risk from experiencing it.
The aim of this conference is to look at the impact of hate crime against disabled people and consider its implications for the wider community.
The contents are appropriate to public, voluntary and private sector bodies and social housing organisations. Speakers on the day include:
Crown Prosecution Service
Equality and Human Rights Commission
Northumbria University / The Lawnmowers
Office for Disability Issues
Three Rivers Housing Association
