June Easy Read Newsletter

Hello from the Easy Read Online Team!


It has been a busy month for us here at Easy Read Online!


 

I Need Easy Read

Everyone should have access to clear information that they can understand about the general election. That’s why we created a free document that explains how to find easy read resources. Check it out here:





As part of our I need Easy Read campaign, we sent a pledge to over 3,000 candidates running to be MP. We asked them to ensure businesses and organisations provide easy read information and to make sure people in their constituency know what easy read is and how they can ask for it.


We are thrilled that over 100 candidates have signed our pledge so far! You can see our pledge here:





Did your MP sign our pledge? If not, we would love your help! Please email your MPs to ask for their support!





 

Learning Disability Week

Some of our colleagues visited Mencap Liverpool and Sefton, to have a catch-up about the I Need Easy Read Campaign, during Learning Disability Week.

A social media graphic created by the official Mencap organisation. Includes the words 'Learning Disability Week 2024' and 'Do you see me?'

This year’s theme: “Do you see me?” Is all about making sure people with learning disabilities feel seen, heard and valued. This fits perfectly with the I Need Easy Read Campaign! We had a lively discussion about how important it is for politicians to make information accessible to everyone!


We are all thrilled that the campaign has reached so many people, and long may this continue!

Free Content


In addition to our free document about the general election, we asked those who subscribe to our newsletter what topics they would benefit from having easy read information written about. They asked for a document about Understanding Death, which you can read here:






 

International Easy Read Community of Practice

Some of our team took part in the first-ever ‘International Easy Read Community of Practice’ meeting in June. The group was set up by an Australian Easy Read provider, The Easy Read Toolbox, and the meeting was coordinated by Disability Equality Scotland. The aim of the group is to discuss best practices and to look at establishing some universal Easy Read standards. We’re excited to learn from Easy Read comrades around the world and to share our own experiences.


 

That’s all from us this month! As always, thank you to all of the clients we have worked with. It’s been a pleasure to support you in creating accessible information. If you need to request a quote for information in Easy Read, you can use our online form:

Great work, Easy Read Online Team! Making information accessible is so important, especially during election times. I'm thrilled to see the effort being put into the I Need Easy Read campaign.
