Helping Taxi drivers in Yeovil and Weston Super Mare to reduce Hate Crime.

In April 2017 Diversity Voice run focus group for Romanian Taxi drivers, who were frequently attacked by some passengers during night work. Some of tax drivers were alleged of sexual crime including rape. At this stage 2 taxi drivers were found not guilty after trial in Taunton Crown Court.

Diversity Voice together with Avon and Somerset Police, SARI would like to engage taxi drivers, owners of restaurants, people working in food shops and any business, which are affected with hate crime.
This is direct letter from Diversity Voice to people who may benefit from this research.

Dear All,
it has past some time since we met in Yeovil at the taxi driver focus group last year. Since this time we strongly campaigned with several organisations to make a changes for you. We got good news and we would like to share this with you. Yeovil and Weston Super Mare have been selected as town to run night time economy research. What we would like to do is to engage some of you to help in creating and shaping questions. We will need to have your feedback when the question appears online. This is only to make sure that research is in the best outcome and will make sure we will shape an additional support for vulnerable taxi drivers, shop owners etc.
There will be two ways to deliver this one will be online and second will be planned face to face interview at night when researches, police, Diversity Voice, Sari, and hopefully a few taxi drivers will collect information. If you are interested in this project, please let me have your details and we will engage during this process. Please e-mail to This email address is being protected from spambots.
