LEAD an established Hate Crime Training project which is funded by the National Lottery Community Fund. You will be based at our office in Deptford, South East London.

Supported by the LSU Director, you will coordinate, develop and expand the project. You will be responsible for supporting, training, and at times, recruiting a team of six paid Hate Crime Trainers, who will be people with a learning disability. You will support them to facilitate workshops, presentations, and training to groups of people with learning disabilities, year six and secondary school aged children, and to front line workers who come into contact with people with learning disabilities. Workshops will inform people about what hate crime is, how to recognise it, and how to report it.

We seek a person with experience and strong knowledge of supporting people with a learning disability and either experience or strong interest in disability hate crime. The person must value people with a learning disability and put them first. You must believe in the principles of supporting people with a learning disability to have a strong voice in society and to take control of their own lives.
