  • 100 Hours Volunteer Awards

    Congratulations to everyone who received

    their 100 hours volunteering certificates

    at Civic Centre on 7th July 2015.

    Well done and

    thank you all. Your

    support is greatly

    appreciated.

    These Thing Might be a Disability Hate Crime Stones being thrown at my window Someone using borrowing my mobile and using up my credit A group stealing my shopping. My neighbour coming round on my benefit day so we can go

    to the pub and buy drinks using my money Family members taking my money with out asking. My support worker buying things for herself with my

    money when she takes me shopping. School children calling me names on the bus when I come home from the day

    centre. What should I do if anything like this is happening to me? You must tell someone. It could be........ Your support worker One to One Police Trusted friend or family Social worker Why do we need to report it as a Hate Crime? If the court decides the crime happened to you because you have a disability the person will go to prison for longer. You may get extra support to help you cope with the hate crime. It could stop the same thing happening to others who have a disabitlity. It is important to make sure you get help to fill in a Hate Crime Report as well as an Allerters form.

    One-to-One FOOTBALL CLUB

    Sadly our Football Club has had to close

    due to low numbers taking part.

    The good news is that Enfield Town

    Football Club has agreed to let our

    members train with them for free. Please

    speak to Usha if you are interested and

    she will give you a registration form to fill

    in.
