THE Police and Crime Commissioner has visited a Stafford-based mental health charity which benefited from his Proceeds of Crime Fund.

PCC Matthew Ellis has revisited Mid Staffordshire Mencap after giving them funding for a new project in January, which was designed to teach people with learning disabilities about hate and mate crime.

Hate and mate crime is where a person with learning disabilities is exploited by people posing as their friends.

Disabled people can now benefit from bespoke sessions run by specialist outreach staff thanks to £5,417 from the fund.
