We are committed to supporting people with learning disabilities who are victims of hate crime, mate crime or exploitation. We support people to recognise and report crimes committed against them simply because of who they are. Safer Tomorrows helps people to feel safe and confident about being part of their community and feel comfortable about reporting incidents and crimes through the appropriate channels.
We work closely with our local police and community engagement teams to help people to identify what a disability hate crime is and gain the confidence to report incidents and crimes. 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 identified and reported.
