Easy read information

Easy read is not just for people with learning disabilities.  It is also useful for anyone who wants to find important information quickly.

Easy read is usually simple language and basic facts.  It also uses drawings and photos to make information easier to understand. 

Some easy read information is on film or on audio, so you can watch it or listen to it. 

Our easy read links

You'll see links to easy read information and films on some of our webpages.  We'd like to thank the organisations who have taken the time to develop and share their easy read information for us to use.  

Please revisit this page as we'll be adding new resources in the future.
