Lambeth Hate Crime Champions – Volunteer scheme

We are in the process of setting up the Lambeth Hate Crime Champions Volunteering Scheme for those who are interested in volunteering to help us tackle hate crime in the borough.

Our first volunteer Krystal joined the team and is currently working on a pan-London project mapping out current hate crime provision across the London boroughs.

She is also helping us develop the volunteering scheme.

We are recruiting two types of volunteers, Venue Hate Crime Champions and Community Hate Crime Champions.

Venue Hate Crime Champions

  • Act as the Single Point of Contact for their venue/organisation.
  • Be trained how to use the Lambeth Hate Crime Blog to signpost people to advice and support.
  • Will ensure hate crime information (posters and leaflets) are displayed and available within their venues/organisations.
  • Assist with the peer education of their colleagues, customers and clients where appropriate.
  • Be part of the Lambeth Hate Crime Network and receive regular updates of what is being done to tackle hate crime in Lambeth.

Community Hate Crime Champions

  • Be trained how to use the Lambeth Hate Crime Blog to signpost people to advice and support.
  • Assist with hate crime research
  • Help develop the Lambeth Hate Crime Champions volunteering scheme.
  • Enable us to run the Lambeth Hate Crime Reporting Stall
  • Will hand out Lambeth Hate Crime Reporting Cards/Information at events throughout the year.
  • Be part of the Lambeth Hate Crime Network and receive regular updates of what is being doing to tackle hate crime in Lambeth.

Due to the nature of our work all Community Hate Crime Champions will need to undergo a DBS check with the Criminal Records Bureau.
