Have your say at charity coffee morning
A charity that tackles disability hate crime is holding a coffee morning tomorrow to get feedback on the initiative.
I Am Me Scotland is a community charity which works in partnership with Police Scotland to raise awareness of and tackle disability hate crime.
It is one of the most under-reported crimes in the UK as disabled people often accept abuse and harassment as part of daily life.
The charity developed Keep Safe which created places for disabled, vulnerable and elderly people to go when they’re out and about in the community.
People can access these premises for help if they feel lost, confused, scared, in danger, or have been the victim of a crime.
Keep Safe Places have a sticker in the window, but are also listed on the I Am Me Scotland website and on the free Keep Safe Scotland app.
I Am Me Scotland is holding a coffee morning in Hamishes’Hoose, High Street, Paisley, from 11am till 1pm.
Organisers are keen to hear from people about Keep Safe as it expands across Scotland.
