Sir Tom Cowie Campus
Mate Crime occurs when a person is harmed or taken advantage of by someone they thought was their friend. The term ‘Mate Crime’ is being used by some disability organisations to raise awareness. People with learning disabilities for example are often befriended by people who then exploit them.
The conference will raise the awareness of Mate Crime through the use of local case studies as well as explore ways of improved multi-agency working around the issue.
Workshops will include:
Online Abuse and Learning Disability – Glen Batey
Cuckooing/County Lines Criminality – Andy Fairlamb
Hate Crime/Mate Crime and the Law – Professor Catherine Donovan, Sunderland University
Adult Multi-Agency Working in an Adult Setting – Julie Crichton, Gateshead Council
Modern Day Slavery – Chris Reeves, Hope for Justice
Mate Crime – Rod Landman
