People’s Choice hate crime project wins an award!

People’s Choice is proud to announce that its Hate Crime Training has won the HEAR #EndHateTogether award for its innovative work with Barnet Metropolitan Police.

Police Hate Crime Liason Officer Michael Richards says: “I am most proud of the relationship that we have been able to build between Inclusion Barnet and Barnet Police. Mahmuda, Michelle and their colleagues from Inclusion, as well as from the variety of charitable support centres have been an inspiration and have worked tirelessly to keep the momentum of the project from its infancy in January 2016. The Borough of Barnet is in a significantly better place when it comes to recognition and understanding of all hate crime and specifically disability hate crime.”

Caroline Collier, Inclusion Barnet CEO added: “I am delighted that the work of our hate crime project and its innovative joint working with Barnet Metropolitan Police Service has achieved this award. People’s Choice, our learning disability self-advocacy team, have done some amazing training and it’s great to see this recognised. I’d like to say thanks to our partners at the Met, our funders at Trust for London, the HEAR Network and everyone who voted for us.”
