450 young people receive Hate Crime Awareness Sessions following anti-bullying week work.
Schools embracing the message of kindness
CACH carries out 3 different types of work;
We offer support to victims of hate crime, hate incidents and discrimination. The support offered comes in a range of options to suit the specific case and individual. This can range from acting as an advocate to simply offering a listening service for those who do not want to take matters further.
The educational aspect of the work we do takes place mostly in secondary schools and institutions offering further and higher education, although we can work with primary school pupils too. We use various educational tools and approaches to help people question the judgements they make about others and think about the way they treat them.
In addition to working in educational establishments, we also offer training sessions about CACH and hate crime to partner agencies, whilst we can also run awareness sessions in community settings.
We could not do the previous 2 aspects of our work without promoting our services and telling others about what we do. We are keen to attend community events that support diversity, education and personal safety. If you would like us to attend your event please complete the enquiry form or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
A hate crime can be any kind of crime, e.g. harassment, criminal damage etc. If the person committing the crime does so because they think the victim is different from them in some way then that can be classed as a hate crime. Common categories of hate crime include disability, age, race, religion, sexuality, gender identity but other reasons such as the way a person looks or dresses can also be classed as a hate crime.
This is exactly the same as a hate crime but when technically no crime has been committed, e.g. low level bullying or discrimination.
Simply put, discrimination is when you are treated unfairly based on somebody’s belief that you are different to them in some way, be that based on a disability, age, race etc.
There are different kinds of discrimination as defined in the UK: http://www.equality-law.co.uk/news/106/66/Types-of-discrimination-definitions/
