EHRC Tackling disability-related harassment: Final progress report 2017

In 2011, following a two-year inquiry, the EHRC produced a series of recommendations on what public authorities and public transport operators should do to help prevent and deal with disability hate crime.

Four years after the publication of the last progress report in 2013, ‘Tackling disability-related harassment: Final progress report 2017’ formally concludes the Commission’s review. It outlines the actions and initiatives taken to implement our recommendations, and what the EHRC will be doing as part of their hate crime strategy.
