Hate Crime Awareness Week takes place in October 2016: here’s the latest resource from Travelling Ahead young people aimed at raising awareness of the impact of bullying and hate crime on young people – told through poetry and words of young people from Gypsy and Traveller communities in north and south Wales

Travelling Ahead’s Tackling Hate Crime Project started way back when young people at the National Forum made a film called Travellers Tales to dispel the myths about Gypsies and Travellers – here it is

The next step was young people talking to Travelling Ahead about hate crime and they made this short film that was shown at the Welsh Government Launch of their Tackling Hate Crime Framework

Since then young people have been making short films, poems and presentations which they want to be made available in training to teachers, police, councillors, schools and other young people – to get your copy of our Tackling Hate Crime Resource contact us here
