We are pleased to announce that following meetings through the year we have managed to secure a partnership with Lancashire Victim Services to help support all participants regardless of age who have been a victim of hate crime.
This is a free service that will be offered on receipt of a complaint being made to provide emotional support to those who have been a victim of hate crime, regardless of whether they are pursuing a formal complaint or not.
In addition to this we have also made an application to become a victim friendly organisation, within the next year. This will ensure that key members of staff are trained to complete referral forms on a victims behalf and people not just in football but the community can use a safe and secure environment to confide in us.
Lastly we are also able to announce that in partnership with LVS we are developing a training programme to educate participants on what is a hate crime and how these types of incidents effect people, in an attempt to reduce the number of these incidents.
