Debbie’s Reducing Stigma Blog July

Keeping Safe event by Debbie Lomas  25th June 2015

2015-06-24 10.24.08

I went to the above event on the 10th June, which was a very interesting event, to listen to at the Colwyn Bay Cricket Club where I met Rob Newton – Miller, who is the Diversity Officer, from the North Wales Police, who was talking about Hate Crime or any incidents and showed us a video about Hate Crime, and he told us about to report a crime or an incident, and who we have to contact, what support is available also and how to keep safe on Facebook which I didn’t know about beforehand. I also found out there was a scheme which the library have got, in case, you are lost and don’t where you are. This event was also mentioned in the Pioneer, the same week as the keeping safe event came out.

There was a lady from Victim Support Sue Jones doing a talk on Hate Crime, this scheme is funded by the Welsh Government, increasing the report on hate crime and hate incident which are across North Wales and to offer support to the victims of any offences. A  Hate Crime or any incident is committed because of who we are and because of your age. The disability, sexuality, region, ethnicity, gender etc, someone, or a group of people, who targets you, committing a crime against you, bullies you, or harass you; this is an example of hate crime.

I thought the event, was interesting event, for everyone, to know about, if they have had incident of Hate Crime.
