A safe environment for people to report and to know that the protest is going to be carried through the whole way to getting justice”

Frank Larkin, Disability Awareness & Equality Trainer

Why do you care?

I care because there is no legislation in Ireland dealing with hate crime and I have a huge interest in particular in disability hate crime. I don’t want to see these things happening again.

What would be needed for the implementation of a victim centred approach in your national context?

A safe environment for people to report and to know that the protest is going to be carried through the whole way to getting justice.

What do you think is the added value of the Facing Facts! initiative?

Shared learning and experiences is a big thing. Being able to see what is working for people and see what is not working. It is very important because you can make things better by seeing what went wrong for people and see good practices and what went well for people.
