Disability Wales

Talk to us about Disability Hate Crime

 

 

Disability Wales (DW) is carrying out some work for Victim Support Cymru which receives Welsh Government funding to run the National Hate Crime Report and Support Centre Wales. They want to make sure that their service is accessible to disabled people and provides the right kind of support to people who experience hate crime. They have asked DW to help them with this.

 

In partnership with Bridgend Coalition of Disabled People, we are holding a meeting from 2pm until 4pm on Thursday 5th October 2017 at St Johns Ambulance, Minerva St, Bridgend CF31 1TA to hear your views about disability hate crime and the support and services available to people who experience it.
