What is
Easy Read?

Illustrated image of a man thinking.

Easy Read is an accessible format.

It is used by people with a learning disability and other people who have difficulty with standard information.

Easy Read is a way of translating difficult information and making it easier to understand.

Easy Read information uses easy words in short sentences, with pictures to help explain the words.​

The Equality Act (2010) and Accessible Information Standard require organisations to produce information in an accessible format. Easy Read can ensure that disabled people have equal access to information and are not discriminated against.

Easy Read information enables people to:​

  • Be more independent.

  • Take part in the world around them.

  • Get equal access to health, care, support and other services.

  • Make use of employment, education and training opportunities.

  • Develop knowledge and make the best of their lives.

  • Have a say in issues that affect them.
