Disability-related Harassment and Hate Crime
In 2011 the Equality & Human Rights Commission| launched an inquiry into disability related harassment. 'Hidden in plain sight'| is the final report of the inquiry which uncovers that harassment is a commonplace experience for disabled people, but often a culture of disbelief and systemic institutional failures are preventing it from being tackled effectively.
In the follow-up to Hidden in plain sight, “Out in the Open – A Manifesto for Change|” the EHRC set out a wide range of formal responses from relevant organisations and set out final recommendations.
In response to these reports Bournemouth Borough Council are working with the Borough of Poole, Dorset Police, local voluntary organisations and others in the Criminal Justice system to ensure that disabled people know how they can report harassment and hate crime and crucially what support they will receive when they do report incidents.
