Stand By Me: We pledge to end disability hate crime

Share by emailShare by email

We signed up to the Policing Promise in June 2011, which is part of Mencap's Stand By Me campaign to end learning disability hate crime.

The charity is challenging the police, criminal justice system and the courts to end hate crimes against people with a learning disability within a generation.

To show our support for the campaign and all it stands for, we have committed to 10 promises which will ensure victims of learning disability hate crime are supported, respected and kept informed.

Mencap believes people with a learning disability should be free from the fear of hate crime and all parts of the criminal justice system should work with people with a learning disability to stop hate crime. Nottinghamshire Police has pledged to support the campaign and work to end disability hate crime together.
