Friend or Fake Easy Read Booklet
This booklet is for people with a learning disability, families and supporters. It is a booklet for people to share and go through together and talk about. This booklet talks about a type of Disability Hate Crime called Mate Crime – which means that sometimes friends are actually fakes. This booklet tells you what to look out for and what to do if a mate crime happens to you or to someone you know. All disability hate crime is wrong and we want to stop it. Don’t stand for it, report it!
