Launch of Disability Safety Hub – all you need to know about Hate Crime

Disability Equality Scotland (DES) have launched a new website which has been funded by the Scottish Government.

It’s called the the Disability Safety Hub. In the words of DES:

“Its purpose is to help disabled people identify incidents of hate crime, but it also gives information and advice about how to report it.

The website aims to tackle the under-reporting of disability hate crimes. We know from our work that too many disabled people face victimisation and harassment, but brush it off as ‘banter’ or accept it as part of their day-to-day lives. We want this website to help disabled people recognise incidents of hate crime, and offer information about how they can report it.”

As you’ll see, it also provides videos, case studies and useful numbers and contacts.
