About the event:
Session Title: Understanding the impact of violence against vulnerable adults and young people.
Last year we were privileged to hear from two distinguished national speakers; Niall Dickson: Chief Executive, General Medical Council, former broadcaster and CEO of the Kings Fund, followed by Giles Wilmore: Director for Patient and Public Voice and Information Strategy, NHS Commissioning Board, former director of Department of Health Quality Framework.
We continue “our conversation with series” this year with the opportunity to hear from two national and international authorities on Hate Crime; Sylvia Lancaster OBE, Chief Executive of the Sophie Lancaster Foundation and Paul Giannansi OBE, Police Superintendent, Lead Cross Government Hate Crime Programme, Ministry of Justice.
Both speakers will share their views, experience and knowledge about people who are murdered, victimized, bullied or threatened simple because they are “perceived” to be different.
The focus for the evening will be on working in partnership with patients and families who have been victims of hate crime or abuse because they are vulnerable. There is evidence to suggest that doctors and other health care professionals need to be better informed about the impact of violence on young people and should understand the consequences of poor care when adequate support is not provided.

“Alternative Hate Crime”
