Bristol Hate Crime and Discrimination Services (BHCDS) is your local collaboration of partner agencies, led by SARI, that together are providing hate crime and discrimination services. To find out more, visit the BHCDS website.
As well as providing a free, person-centred, confidential casework service for victims of hate and discrimination and a Restorative Justice and Conflict Resolution Service for victims and perpetrators of hate crime, we are also funded to provide free workshops for residents and frontline practitioners in Bristol.
These workshops are particularly for those who are at risk of facing hate crime or discrimination so they know their rights, where to turn to and how they can respond more confidently.
The sessions are ideal for staff working in grassroots services such as housing, social work, support work, criminal justice, mental health services as well as local residents who are black and minority ethnic, of faith, disabled or LGBTQ+. They are also relevant for service users of frontline services.
The workshops will be online.
