Event description


Tower Hamlets Local Voices Project - Community Safety work stream

As part of our Community Safety workstream the Local Voices Project have agreed to continue to deliver three Disability Hate Crime Round Table events each year.

These will take place on the second Wednesday of each February, June and October between 1 pm to 4 pm at Jack Dash House on the Isle of Dogs.

These meetings aim to;

  • keep Disability Hate Crime on the agenda,

  • provide a forum for disabled people to discuss disability hate crime,

  • bring representatives from the local authorities, key partners and communities affected by hate crime together,

  • to share news and information updates from across the disability hate crime/hate crime sector,

  • to share best practice and experinces dealing with disability hate crime.

  • to explore intersectionality with other hate crime strands

Real hosted it's first Disability Hate Crime Round Table in October 2017, since then we have held a series of these events during 2018, continuing into 2019. Each event is usually attened by up to 30 people.
