Our 3-step EasyRead+ production service
We aim to provide the best accessible information services in town so we've joined forces with respected advocacy group Camden People First, 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 to support NHS organisations to attain the NHS Accessible Information Standard. 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+?
Working together IC Works and Camden People First can produce Easy Read documents about healthcare, mental health care, social services encompassing the entire suite of internal and external communications including patient information, strategic documents, agendas, minutes, annual plans and newsletters.
An EasyRead+ document will also be accessible for a large section of your non-disabled audience who will appreciate a shorter and plainer English version of your leaflets or documents.
