Free Learning Disability Bullying and Hate Crime workshop for year 6 pupils.

Booking now! Lewisham Speaking up, a charity run by and for people with learning disabilities and is organising free workshops about Disability Bullying and Hate Crime for year 6 pupils around the borough.  

Wednesdays to Fridays, morning or afternoon slots available.

Autumn Term available.

Schools and teachers: to book please contact Jo Hart on or 0208 692 1862 (Weds to Fridays) website: with two possible slots you would like to have us visit you.

The Workshop covers:

  • What is a Hate Crime and a Learning Disability Hate Crime
  • How to spot it
  • How does it make people with learning disabilities feel
  • What can you do – including How do you report it

The Workshop is run by two Trainers with a learning disability and supported by a facilitator.  It includes a hate crime film (which we very proudly made ourselves) and uses different creative ways to bring out pupils thoughts and feelings.

We have involved year 6 pupils in checking our workshop and use a film devised and directed by our members to help pupils think about the issues. We use different creative ways to bring out pupils thoughts and feelings and finish on a group contract to say what they might do differently in the future.

The workshops are 1.5 hours long, but do discuss with us if this needs to be shorter.
