Stay Safe East’s Objectives:

  • To support disabled and deaf people who experience or have experienced violence, abuse, hate crime, bullying, anti-social behaviour, sexual or domestic violence.
  • 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.
