Accessible information

We all have a right to receive information in a format that is accessible.

Inclusion Advisors who worked on this project were clear that governments and organisations need to do better at making information accessible.  

For people with an intellectual disability this means clear, easy to understand information, preferably in Easy Read.

This section explores what we mean by accessible information. It includes advice on:

  • What is Easy Read and why is it important
  • Tips on commissioning Easy Read translations for your work
  • Talking about your work in more accessible ways
  • Other types of accessible information
