Stop Learning Disability Hate Crime
Stop Learning Disability Hate Crime – 0808 802 1155
My name is James Gibbs and I am an advocate working with Stop Hate UK to support victims of Hate Crime and discrimination.
I would like to make you aware of one of our services that is available for use in England & Wales which I think you will find interesting and useful to your organisation, staff and the people you support.
This is a helpline dedicated to supporting victims of Learning Disability Hate Crime, facilitating increased reporting of incidents, providing independent information, advice and support to victims, families and professionals.
The helpline is open 24 hours a day, every day of the year and this year we are celebrating our 2nd anniversary. In this time we have provided advice and support in almost 500 contacts.
As we continue to provide round the clock support, you will always get through to an operator on the other end of the phone.
In addition to this core service, we are also able to facilitate referrals to police, council and local organisations for support and action, and offer reporting and support via text, online chat, email and via BSL and language interpreters.
As part of my role as advocate with the charity, I am also able to follow up with callers to ensure they are accessing the right support, receiving the right information and are fully aware of their options.
To celebrate our 2nd year in operation, we are providing free promotional materials, including posters, cards and our famous wristbands. Please do get in touch if you would like a supply.
