May Newsletter!

Welcome to the May edition of our newsletter. Here are some of the things we have been up to and some free resources which you can share.


 

What we’ve been up to


This month we have worked on Easy Read documents for a variety of organisations

including the Department of Health and Social Care, NHS England, Ffilm Cymru Wales, Kisharon, and Cornwall Council.

We had our quarterly company training day on 25 May, where we discussed a range of topics for improving the Easy Read documents we create, such as:


  • Improvements to our Quality Assurance process.

  • Using AI to aid our translations.

  • Best practice for using icons in our images.

During the day we also met with Mencap Liverpool and Sefton members to discuss our shared Ask for Easy Read campaign.

Results of the Ask for Easy Read survey

The survey to find out how much people know about Easy Read and how to ask for information in Easy Read has now closed. We will be sharing the results in full soon but some highlight facts from the survey were:

  • 39% of people said they did not know how to ask for information in Easy Read.

  • 40% of people said they did not know they had the right to ask services they use for information in Easy Read. This rose to 45% of people who have a learning disability.

We think this shows the need for an awareness campaign to let people with learning disabilities and their supporters know about their rights. We will work with our partners at Mencap Liverpool and Sefton to further develop this campaign in the coming months.

Coming up in June…


Learning Disability Awareness Week

19 to 25 June

Learning Disability Awareness Week is all about sharing the successes that people with learning disabilities have and busting myths about what living with a learning disability is like.

Watch out for our social media posts during the week celebrating success stories from people with learning disabilities.

Best wishes from the Easy Read Online team

Attention, London foodies! I've just uncovered a fantastic website that highlights the diverse street food scene in the city. If you're a fan of on-the-go gastronomy, this is the ultimate resource for you. The website here features an extensive list of street food suppliers, ranging from traditional favorites to innovative newcomers. From gourmet hot dogs and loaded fries to exotic wraps and refreshing beverages, the options are endless. With detailed vendor profiles and interactive maps, you'll be able to navigate the streets of London with ease, discovering hidden culinary gems along the way.
