Barking and Dagenham Council are tackling intolerance with free hate crime training on April 25.
The workshop will provide training for volunteers from faith organisations and other community groups to become ‘Hate Crime reporting champions’.
In a bid to increase communication between law enforcers and the community, the event will teach the basics of how to identify hate crime, how it can be reported and how members of the public can tackle it within their area.
It will be run by the council’s voluntary services, Citizens Advice, Victim Support, and Stop Hate UK.
The training will also seek input on the council’s ‘local plan’, which is looking at creating interventions to stop hate crime.
