We aim to provide the best accessible information services in town so we've joined forces with respected advocacy group , providers of self-advocacy, one-to-one advocacy, peer and group advocacy services.
Together we provide an enhanced Easy Read solution - EasyRead+ - which we've developed with the needs of public bodies, government agencies, quangos, corporations, charities and SMEs in mind.
The service 'soft-launched' in February and we've already worked on Easy Read documents for Sheffield University and TfL.
EasyRead+ has 3 steps:
Step 1 - Draft Easy Read document produced by experienced Easy Read author (and graphic designer if a print ready file is required) and provided for initial comments and feedback.
Step 2 - EasyRead+ workshop - a hands-on session with Easy read author, project & support workers, and at least 4 learning disabled Easy Read editors to enhance the accessibility of the initial draft.
Step 3 – A quality and accessibility assured EasyRead+ document is produced - incorporating the ideas and amendments from the collaborative workshop - as print ready and web optimised files.
We reckon we can produce a document that’s on par or even better than the original and that will be accessible to an extremely wide audience including:
- learning disabled people
- people with reading problems
- people with English as a second language
- Deaf people whose first language is British Sign Language.
WHAT CAN YOU EASY READ+?
- Healthcare services
- Housing services
- Social care
- Transport services
- Other council services
- Accessible services
- Public consultation
- Information and advice produced by government agencies
- Information and marketing material produced by banks, cinemas, shops and other businesses.
HOW ACCESSIBLE ARE YOUR SERVICES?
Nearly all businesses and organisations have potential disabled customers, but the size of this audience can vary enormously depending on the accessibility of the products and services on offer and the accessibility of information about these products or services.
An EasyRead+ document could help to open up new markets, in fact we're confident that a large chunk of your non-disabled audience will appreciate a shorter and plainer English version of your leaflets or documents.
