People with learning difficulties are vulnerable to hate crime

According to Mencap as many as 9 out of 10 people with learning difficulties have been the subject of hate crime and bullying*

How can this be prevented?

This is very difficult because people with learning difficulties are so vulnerable and you can't be with them all the time. This is especially a problem if they live independently. Advice is given on the Mencap website (see link below)*
