About Easy Read

Easy Read aims to make information more accessible for people who have difficulties with the written word

When a person can understand the options that are available to them,  they can be more involved in decisions that will affect their everyday life. This, in turn, means that they are more likely to get the most appropriate support for their needs which leads to improved outcomes.

The easy read format is easy to understand because it uses:

  • plain English with no jargon
  • shorter sentences
  • supporting images
