TMG have launched the first trauma therapy project for victims of race hate crime.
The Trauma Therapy Service provides emotional and psychological support to traumatised victims of race-hate crime.
The project has two primary aims:
1. to help traumatised victims of racial and religious harassment develop and implement mechanisms for coping with their trauma to enable them re-establish and repair familial and other relationships that have been adversely affected by the crimes; relieve anxiety and depression; and reconnect and engage with normal everyday activities taken for granted by most of us.
2. To work in partnership with relevant statutory bodies in the Greater London area to develop best practice to victims at a local authority level.
The project is funded by the Big Lottery Fund.
