Information on Disability Hate Crime are available on the links below.

Key messages to be conveyed to the pupils:

  • Disabled people experience hate crime every day but it is often not reported to the Police - many reasons for this but key is that disabled people see this as "bullying" and something they just normalise
  • Those who witness disability hate crime should report it
  • There is little awareness of disability hate crime amongst the general population
  • Disability hate crime can take many forms (including online abuse) and it is on the increase
