'Hate Crime - Experts by Experience' is an event taking place in Gateshead Library's Caedmon Hall in National Hate Crime Awareness Week 2018. This follows on from a successful regional Hate Crime Conference held in Gateshead in 2017 where statutory bodies and support agencies explained the services they deliver.

This year we wanted to do something different and have arranged for some wonderful guest speakers to share with the audience their experiences around the impact hate crime has had on them and their families. We want to showcase why reporting hate crime is so important and demonstrate why receiving the support available can help a victim's journey to recovery.

Personal insights will be shared and all speakers are open to questions. Paralympic gold medalist Stephen Miller, MBE is the keynote speaker.

The event is co-ordinated by Gateshead Council's Community Safety Team and the Central Community Engagement Team from Northumbria Police, but will be led by the individuals in the hope that they can raise awareness and encourage reporting of hate crime in Gateshead.

There will also be an opportunity to meet some of the key agencies working collectively to tackle Hate Crime and provide support to victims such as Northumbria Police, Victim's First Northumbria and other support services will have information stalls around the venue.

This event is specifically for agencies and organisations working in or across Gateshead.

Refreshments will be provided at the morning break & there is a cafe available inside the venue.

Please note that there are a small number of parking bays available at the venue. Gateshead Central Library is a 10 minute walk from Gateshead Interchange & Metro Station.
