Welcome to our June newsletter - it’s been a hot one! Here are some of the things we have worked on this month.
We have been very busy at Easy Read Online this month, working on Easy Read documents for a variety of organisations including Stockdales, North Star Housing, West Sussex County Council, Nottingham Castle, the Home Office, the Department for Health and Social Care and the Covid-19 Inquiry.
Eid Mubarak from the Easy Read Online team to everyone celebrating Eid al-Adha this week.
We have been working with Stockdales, a charity that supports children and young adults with learning disabilities in Sale, Greater Manchester.
We worked with the charity to create an Easy Read document about their history. It was interesting to learn about how the charity has worked to support people with learning disabilities from the 1950s to today, and how children and young people with disabilities were supported in the past.
Something a bit different
We usually work on creating complete Easy Read documents but this month there has been a couple of projects that differ from the norm
Our brilliant illustrator Danni worked with Zetetick Housing to create an illustration for the front page and centrefold pull-out of their magazine. You can see the completed design here:
We worked with the art gallery at Nottingham Castle to create Easy Read versions of the plaques that hang beside the artworks and inform visitors about them.
We are really pleased to be part of this initiative and hope that more visitors to the gallery feel informed and included due to the Easy Read information they can read.
Coming up in July's Newsletter
Disability Pride Month
July is Disability Pride Month
Disability Pride Month starts conversations and raises awareness among people who are not part of the disabled community on how to be better allies and what they can do in support.
You can find out more about Disability Pride Month from Inclusive Employers:
We hope you have a great month ahead and look forward to working together with you on any future Easy Read projects.
Best wishes from the Easy Read Online team
