Our latest dialogue debrief has been produced following a dialogue with a range of public transport providers in Nottingham. With an increase in reported hate crimes and incidents on public transport it is important that transport providers respond in a way that gives their staff and passengers confidence that their fears and concerns are being taken seriously. This is especially the case for people who are most vulnerable to hate crime such as people with disabilities, LGBT and Muslim communities.
The dialogue included a presentation from Nottingham Muslim Women’s Network on Muslim women’s experiences of public transport and how their lives are impacted by fear and caution, particularly after a terrorist incident in the UK or abroad. To download the full debrief please click here.
It was agreed a follow up session would focus on good practice that could be adopted by transport providers. This session will take place towards the end of November.
