Hate Crime awareness in schools is still a BIG ISSUE!
NGDA young people attended the PCC youth conference as delegates and were able to articulate concerns about the lack of education and support for victims, in tackling hate crime in schools.
NGDA are fully aware of the knock on affect, that a lack of intervention can have on any victims confidence or self esteem when they are subjected to this type of abuse.
NGDA have also found that some victims become perpetrators after trying to access provisions of support without success. This lack of support may be from schools, parents, friends, guardians, officials almost anyone who didn't intervene for the victim at the initial stages.
The impact of this, has been either victims resolving their own problems which can result in committing offences or these types of victims may look for support within groups that will accept them which could be local gangs/radical groups affiliated to criminal behavior.
NGDA attend the PCC conference 2014 as delegates and get involved as
a facilitator for the Hate crime workshop.
This was a tremendous honor and
We Thank Essex PCC
for this fantastic opportunity.
