LD:NorthEast are proud to support people with learning disabilities in Newcastle and North Tyneside who are victims of hate crime. We are committed to supporting people who are victims of hate crime to recognise and report crimes committed against them simply because of who they are.
The reporting of incidents is very low across North Tyneside and Newcastle (which is also the case nationally) and we aim to ensure more crimes are reported as well as raise awareness, working with other agencies to ensure support is offered to people affected and that people know how to report.
We also work closely with, and support local police with how they work with people with those people with learning disabilities who are targeted due to their vulnerability.
