Raising awareness of disability hate crime through drama

This week (13-20 October), is National Hate Crime Awareness Week. In my role at Brandon, I deal with disability hate crime reporting and training in Bristol. We’re part of a multi-agency team coordinated by the police, that plan awareness events, and aim to encourage people to report incidents of disability hate crime. We engage people through drama, theatre, and performance.

Finding Greg's Voice

In February 2015, Brandon Trust started to support Greg in his home. He had been let down by his previous provider. How to communicate support plans, and keeping his anxiety levels low, was not shared or handed over to us. His home life because of this was extremely challenging, however, from the day we took over it was a fresh start for Greg.
