Since January 2015, Why Don’t We has been working in partnership with hft’s Radio 119 to raise awareness of disability hate crime. We were invited to present our work to fifty Social Work and Social Care students and staff from Bradford College and Bradford University.
Typically, the technology took some time to sort out but there was no need to worry because Chris rose to the occasion and kept everyone interested and entertained whilst we sorted it out.
Alan did a brilliant job as quiz master and kept everyone in order. The quiz went down extremely well. It was a great, almost fun, way to present a very serious subject and kept everyone’s attention.
The rest of the team were busy too. Louise and Rebecca gave out and collected quiz sheets and made sure that everyone was comfortable. Stuart took the pictures.
We had some great quotes from participants.
Hayley wrote: “More people need to be aware of hate crime and more will be reported”.
Ayesha told us: “I liked that real stories from real people were told as they gave us a clear understanding of how people with disabilities feel”.
Well done team!
