Our aims:

  • To support Deaf and disabled people who experience or have experienced violence and abuse, hate crime, domestic or sexual violence, carer abuse and others forms of human rights abuses

  • To ensure that disabled and deaf people get the justice they deserve.

  • To provide an independent, accessible, third party reporting site for hate crime and domestic violence.

  • To inform disabled and Deaf people of their rights to be safe, and to encourage them to report incidents and crimes.

  • To build the capacity of our partner organisations (police, voluntary sector, housing, local authority, Crown prosecution service) to provide an inclusive, appropriate service and to deliver justice to disabled and deaf people.

  • To act as a model for good practice.

We are an organisation run by disabled people for disabled people.
