Is disability hate crime prosecution really on the rise?

The CPS (Crown Prosecution Service) announced recently that hate crime prosecutions have risen by 4.7% from the previous year with a 41% increase in disability hate crime prosecutions. This is great news as it means more hate crimes are being recognised, reported, and taken seriously. However, I suspect that disability hate crime reporting and prosecutions are actually still very low.

Despite being the main course for bloodsucking insects and having aching bones as I write this, I’m still a big fan of the new Brandon work scheme 'A Different Day', which encourages office-based staff to get out and spend a day working alongside people we support and their staff teams.
