Developing From The Negatives - DFN

Posted by Des Butler on Wed 12/08/15. Listed in Disability Equality NW news

Disability Equality NW is pleased to announce a new project funded through the Big Lottery fund. The ‘Developing from the Negatives’ project (DFN) aims are to make the public aware of what Disability Hate Crime is and how to report Hate Crime.


Hate crimes and incidents hurt; they can be confusing and frightening. By reporting them when they happen to you, you may be able to prevent these incidents from happening to someone else. You will also help the police understand about hate crime in your local area so they can better respond to it.



Disability Equality NW is a ‘third party reporting centre’. Come and talk to a member of our dedicated staff. You do not even need to give personal details if you do not want to and reports will be treated in strictest confidence.
