When people with a learning disability experience hate crime, it can have serious and even tragic consequences. It can leave them scared and afraid to leave their home, in case they experience violence. This shuts disabled people out of the community, which is poorer as a result.
Many police services are doing good work to stop disability hate crime, but more can be done. Please ask your local police service to show support for people with a learning disability who are victims of hate crime, by signing up to the 'Stand by me' promise.
