We create easy to read content, which is a form of accessible information.
What we do
We help organisations to provide accessible information for people who find standard formats hard to read.
It’s likely that your expertise and time is focused elsewhere. We can be on hand so you don’t have to worry about how to produce information in easy read.
This includes information guides, websites, policy documents, forms and other types of content. If you need support, project management or simply some guidance, please use the contact form.

Why easy read is important

Great easy to read formats help more people to engage and understand. And this helps to improve inclusivity.
Who is easy read designed for?
Easy to read information is easier to understand for people with learning disabilities. This means that they are included and not discriminated against because of their disability.
It’s also useful for other many other people who prefer easier to read documents, letters, leaflets, videos, web pages or posters.
The Equality Act requires the provision of information in accessible formats and this includes easy to read formats.
Easy read information is helpful for many people. It can be provided in different formats depending on your message and who it’s for.
Why is easy read essential?
At least 1 in 5 people in the UK have a long term illness, impairment or disability. Many more have a temporary disability. You can find out more about this from Scope, the disability equality charity for England and Wales.
If you want your communications to have impact, promote inclusion and meet accessibility standards it’s important to ask yourself:
- Is information accessible to your audience when they read your policies, practice and messages?
- Are they clear and impactful with easy to read formats instantly available?
If we use simple language, great style and clear images, we help more people engage with the information they need to know. There’s no one standard format or template when creating easy to read information. This is because every project and audience is different.
We seek the views of people who use easy read – our experts. Getting their input and feedback is the best way to create brilliant easy read content.
