Nick meets with Hate Crime campaigners

July 22, 2009

victim supportOn Tuesday morning I met up with Amanda Bigden from Victim Support and Cath Champion, one of her community advocates, at the Chapel Park Community Centre in St Leonards. 

They told me about the new initiative they are leading in East Sussex to support the victims of hate crime.

It was great to learn about this, and the other work that this easily-missable community centre has been doing in the heart of St Leonard’s. 

Ann Reid, the part-time centre manager, gave me a whistlestop tour and a glimpse of the effort and passion that goes in to supporting some of the most vulnerable and disadvantaged people in our community.

There was a bit of nostalgia for me also, as one of my first jobs after leaving university was to undertake some community development work for a newly built community centre in an Anglican church in Cambridge.

Chapel Park, and those organisations that use it, are a credit to themselves and each other.
