DeafPLUS, a charity supporting Deaf and hard of hearing people, and HEAR have developed workshops to help raise understanding of D/deaf targeted hate crimes.
The workshops are part of a project aimed at increasing awareness of Deaf Hate Crime amongst Hard of Hearing people and will work to gather evidence via questionnaires of peoples’ understanding and experiences of Hate Crime that will be used by the Home Office to develop policy on D/deaf/hard of hearing Hate Crime. The workshops aim to educate participants on the legislation surrounding hate crimes, how to identify when it happens and what can be done about it.
A workshop for deafened/hard of hearing participants will be taking place on Wednesday February 28th 2018 from 12.30 to 4pm at Amnesty International, 25 New Inn Yard, London EC2A 3EA.
A loop system will be in place for hearing aid/cochlear implant users, and lipspeakers will also be provided.
A number of openings are still available, so to book your place please get in touch with Geraldine O’Halloran using geraldine.o’firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone at 0207 791 0105. Be sure to let her know of any other communication support you may need.
