Mate crime is where a vulnerable victim is befriended and then taken advantage of by the perpetrator. The perpetrator will position themselves as the victims friend and may commit a number of offences against the victim.
Perpetrators will often attempt to isolate the victim to make them dependent upon them.
This powerpoint presentation explains how to recognise signs and how we can help to combat Mate Crime, as well as the tragic story of a Mate Crime Victim.
