Keeping Safe Project
MacIntyre has been delivering the Keeping Safe Project, supported and funded by Derbyshire County Council, since 2009. The project aims to support adults with a learning disability to recognise and report Hate Crime and enhance their community safety.
The project has a team of Keeping Safe Champions who are people with a learning disability who deliver free training workshops. The team regularly delivers workshops on the following topics:
- Internet Safety – this can be to a small group or one to one
- Hate Crime
- Friend or Pretend Friend
- Keeping Safe when out and about – including using cash machines, carrying our belongings safely, getting taxis safely
- How to handle bogus callers
