LGBT HATE CRIME ADVOCATES
The LGBT Fed in partnership with Hart Gables is looking for volunteers to be Hate Crime Advocates. As LGBT people we will all have experienced some hate incidents in our lives and so will be aware and sympathetic to other victims. If you are interested in being a support for our fellow LGBT people then we will welcome you. We will be offering training around what to expect, how to deal with potential issues, how to sign-post people to expert advice, and how to be an active listener, how to look confident so that people will trust you and feel that they can rely on you, and we will discuss various cases that have arisen in the past. Plus we will have a workshop from the Crown Prosecution Service to advise us on what constitutes a hate incident and a hate crime.
As one of our volunteers we will put you up for enhanced DBS, and you will
join a small team of other LGBT Hate Crime Advocates.
Usually it will involve about 8 sessions of 1 ½ hrs training to include
refreshments. We would plan to start the training in November.
