Two of these booklets, focusing on hate crime and home security, have been published and will be made available to residents in the Warwickshire and West Mercia policing areas.

Inspector Julia Brealey, Safer Neighbourhood Inspector for Stratford-upon-Avon, said: “We are always looking for new ways to help our local residents protect themselves and their property from harm. Sometimes people with learning difficulties can find themselves more vulnerable to certain types of crime and these books will be extremely beneficial in helping us to help them.

“We are extremely grateful to Christopher; his hard work will make such a difference to others in the community.”

Christopher described the experience of producing the booklets as “hard work but enjoyable and worth it.”

Natalie added: “Christopher has been extremely enthusiastic in producing these materials that he hopes will benefit others. He has also enhanced his word processing, presentation and internet search results with some of his own photography.”
