Reporting is an important issue and challenge. Sometimes the process of making a hate crime report is difficult. Many forms are too complicated and hard to understand.
Hayley and Andre report on an Easy Read reporting form developed in Lambeth.
There are 32 boroughs in London. One borough is called Lambeth Council. Lambeth Council has created a form so that people with learning disabilities can report crimes.
The form is good because it is easy to understand. It has pictures that you can relate to. It has big text. The form is not good for people who cannot read. However, if you can’t read, you can get someone to read it to you and help you fill it in.
We’d like to see other councils like Barking and Dagenham to so something like this.
