Hate crime is on the increase.  This is an undeniable national trend and with ever increasing awareness on the subject and demand on communities to support those most at risk of this type of crime; Would you recognise it if you saw it?  Would you know how to respond and get help for the victim?  

The session will be led by CACH (Communities Against Crimes of Hate) which is the local hate crime partnership covering the South of Staffordshire.  They offer support and education around hate crime of all kinds and the session will give you a better insight into their work.

Topics covered:

  • Who CACH are and what they do

  •  What hate crime is

  •  How to recognise it

  •  Local and national case studies

  •  Recent trends of hate crime

  •  The impact it can have on the victim

  •  Repercussions for the perpetrator

  •  How to access CACH services 

There will also be opportunity to consider and discuss whether you feel your group might inadvertently be preventing marginalised groups involving themselves with your work and how to challenge this.

The session will be interactive and use videos and case studies to help participants grasp the importance of challenging hate crime in our communities.

There is limited parking available on site.  For local parking information visit www.parkopedia.co.uk and enter the venue postcode.
