Autumn 2013 Easy Read update

Moving into the shorter months (hasn't this year flown by? Tempus fugit an all that!) we thought we'd recap on some Easy Read escapades over the last few months in our autumn update.

We completed an Easy Read version of the Centro (West Midlands transport provider) Disabled Persons Concessionary Ticket Application Form in July. This project proved to be one of the most comprehensive as we provided:

  • a print ready version of the document
  • a fillable pdf that could be completed online with the free version of Adobe Acrobat, and
  • invaluable support from our in-house focus group: family carer Jayne and young adult with learning disabilites, Nikki.

Earlier in the year we worked with Jayne and Nikki on the Easy Read version of a tender document for AMG Nursing and Care. AMG were particularly pleased with the carer perspective and insights that Jayne brought to this document, which also helped to inform and improve the original tender documents too.
