People with learning disabilities in Carlisle say hate crime is stopping them living fully independent lives.
And according to Staff at Carlisle Mencap, everyone they work with has been bullied because of their disability at some point.
They've been creating artwork to tell people it's a crime and to try to encourage people to be more inclusive as part of Hate Crime Awareness Week.
Staff at Carlisle Mencap say it's important to educate children at a young age that saying hurtful things about someone because of their disability, religion or race is a crime.
But they also say it's become a problem throughout society, as it's not just children abusing people in public.
A Home Office survey estimates there could be 70,000 disability-motivated hate crimes in the UK every year and that leads Police to believe people with learning disabilities are frequently targeted.
