Safer Communities has been shortlisted for a Continuous Improvements to Tackling Hate Crime award with Stockton-based organisation, Hart Gables.
Hart Gables is a support service for those who identify as LGBT+ across the Tees Valley area and works to ensure that all LGBT+ people are given equal life chances and have services that meet their needs.
The term LGBT+ is intended to emphasise a diversity of sexuality and gender identity-based cultures and is sometimes used to refer to anyone who is non-heterosexual or non-cisgender, instead of exclusively to people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual and/or transgender.
Through our Restorative Cleveland and Victim Care and Advice services, Safer Communities strives to create safe and sustainable communities, enabling people to feel safe, build resilience and provide opportunities for people to engage in a more positive future.
Jo Hodgkinson, CEO of Safer Communities said: “It’s wonderful to have been nominated for our work around this important issue. Hate crime often goes unreported so we hope these awards will inspire confidence in our community that the very best support is available.
“This shortlisting is testimony to the incredibly hard work of all the Safer Communities staff across all of our services, they deserve this recognition. We wish everyone luck for the awards.”
