Easy Read is a way of presenting written information in an easier format to understand, it can therefore be helpful to people with a range of conditions or backgrounds which may impact how a person will process information, for example, learning difficulties, dyslexia, individuals who have recovered from strokes, individuals whose first language is not English etc.

Providing Easy Read options is important as it helps explain content in a simple, more easily understood manner.

The Mayor, Councillor Steven Callaghan welcomed the improvements, saying: “It is important for Council to provide Easy Read options so that everyone is included within the Borough.

“Our Easy Read literature has increased communication with those who require documents to be available in an easier to read format.”
