We have been approached to discuss our work challenging hate crime in Staffordshire and also to discuss the findings of a new BBC survey that shows a rise of nearly 300% (over 5 years) in hate crime against people with disabilities.
Studies carried out by the charity Scope previously showed that 75% of people with disabilities who experience hate crime do not report it so at least some of this rise might be explained by increased confidence or ease in reporting.
Our Coordinator, Anna McLauchlan, is due on air at 8.20am but earlier on in the programme John and Liz will also be talking to Charlie Beswick about her fantastic work in schools educating young people about visual difference following appalling online abuse her son Harry experienced online https://www.ouralteredlife.com/
