February Easy Read Newsletter!

Hello from the Easy Read Online team and welcome to this month’s update.


February’s highlight projects

We were pleased to work with the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights on a piece of work around sharing good practices in supporting disabled people to participate in their communities. We hope that this valuable piece of work can support people to become more involved with their communities around the world.

Queen’s Nursing Institute

We have also been supporting the Queen’s Nursing Institute (QNI) to produce an Easy Read version of their Community Learning Disability Nursing Standards. The Standards are for nurses who give local community and home care to people with a learning disability. The Easy Read version of the Standards will help people with a learning disability to understand the level of care they can expect to receive.

The National Lottery

We have worked with the National Lottery on various projects and most recently we’re producing an Easy Read version of their Climate Action Fund application pack. The Easy Read pack will make the application process more accessible to people around the UK who want to apply for funding towards their projects that aim to tackle climate change.


Free content!

Pharmacy First explainer

Last week we published an Easy Read explainer about the government’s new scheme, Pharmacy First.

This is a way for people to get treatment for some illnesses at the pharmacy without having to get a prescription from the GP.
