The Leicester Centre for Hate Studies will be offering an exciting series of hate crime CPD workshops throughout 2015. The first of these events is a half-day CPD workshop on Disability Hate Crime which has been produced by internationally renowned hate crime experts Dr Neil Chakraborti and Dr Stevie-Jade Hardy.

Due to high demand, workshops are being delivered on two dates: 11 March and 27 March, both from 9am – 2pm (including lunch) at the University of Leicester.

These workshops have been developed to equip practitioners with the knowledge and skills they need to respond to the challenges posed by disability hate crime. On completion, delegates will receive a Continuing Professional Development Award of Completion.

This workshop will appeal to those who have an interest in the following areas:

  • Disability
  • Hate Crime
  • Mental Health
  • Safeguarding
  • Victims
  • Vulnerability 

Dr Stevie-Jade Hardy, Lecturer in Hate Studies, said: “These CPD workshops will offer delegates important insights into disability hate crime through the sharing of victim perspectives and academic evidence. This includes key findings and best practice guidance from the Leicester Hate Crime Project, Britain’s biggest study of hate crime victimisation, and from our other empirical work in this field.”

Dr Neil Chakraborti, Director of the Leicester Centre for Hate Studies, said: “We are delighted to be hosting these workshops which are the first in a series of professional development opportunities that we will be offering this year. Our workshops are truly unique as they offer a victim-led perspective on disability hate crime for practitioners and those with an interest in this area.”

If you are interested in attending, you are urged to book a place as soon as possible as places are allocated on a first come first served basis.
