|Third Party Reporting Centre|
While the vast majority of disabled people and their families live safely and peacefully in their communities, it is an unfortunate fact that some disabled people experience discrimination and abuse due to their impairments.
Any incident of abuse, whether physical or verbal, experienced by a disabled person is identified as a Hate Crime, the official definition of which is:
"Any offence which is perceived by the victim or any other person, to be motivated by hostility or prejudice based on a person's race; religion; sexual orientation or disability"
Not everyone is comfortable reporting their experiences and dealing with the police. This is why Third Party Reporting Centres have been established across Cornwall, to provide information, advice and support to people with any concerns.
There are four other Third Party Reporting Centres in Cornwall:
It's really important that people are encouraged to tell their stories.
Even anonymous reports will help increase the statistics and improve how victim support services and policing are provided.
