I want to know more about the campaign

In 2016 we ran a survey which found that 73% of people with learning disabilities and/or autism had been victims of hate crime. A subsequent survey in 2019 found that 78% of people who had been subjected to crime or abuse felt it was because of their disability.

To tackle these shocking statistics, we’re working with organisations and individuals who can change not only how victims are treated, but also how others understand disability hate crime.

#ImWithSam is a long term campaign that continues to change how disability hate crimes are treated and how victims are supported.

It’s unacceptable that less than half of victims have reported the crime committed against them to the police, and that the justice system doesn’t treat victims as reliable witnesses.

We’ve worked with government, police forces and academics to reach those who can make things better.

We also provide information for people with learning disabilities and/or autism, and the people who care for and support them, so they know their rights.
