Hate Crime Awareness Session – 18th October 2018
National Hate Crime Week was October 13th – 20th and as Citizens Advice Dudley Borough are an official Hate Crime Third Party Reporting Centre we invited Sarah Nixon, West Midlands Police Vulnerability Officer (Hate Crime Lead) and Kat Lafferty from Dudley MBC Community Safety Team to deliver a Hate Crime Awareness drop-in Session at Dudley House on Thursday 18th October 2018.
One of our priorities is to improve our performance as a Hate Crime Third Party Reporting Centre so we encouraged our employees and volunteers to attend to learn more about what constitutes Hate Crime and how we can support clients to report them (either online or directly to the police.)
Many of our staff found this session informative and will help us all to increase our knowledge and ability to support victims of Hate Crime.
