Tackling disability hate crime

Monday, July 16, 2012

Meg Munn MP for Sheffield Heeley recently attended a meeting organised by disability charity Mencap organised to raise awareness of the issue of disability hate crime and highlight the positive progress that has been made since the launch of Mencap’s ‘Stand by me’ campaign last year.

 

South Yorkshire Police is one of the 34 police forces which have signed up to the ‘Stand by me’ police promise, and has committed to support people with a learning disability and do their best to increase hate crime convictions. As many as 9 out of 10 people with a learning disability have been a victim of hate crime and bullying.

 

Many candidates for the new Police and Crime Commissioner roles across England and Wales have faced questions from disabled people and their families. They have demanded that police and crime plans include a commitment to tackling disability hate crime.

 

Meg said:

 

 “It’s very important that South Yorkshire Police have signed up to Mencap’s ‘Stand by me’ campaign to help support people with learning disabilities. Disability hate crime is a serious issue across the country and I will stand by my local police force in Sheffield Heeley, encouraging them to tackle this problem.”
