This Learning Disability Week, Health for All/Bee Together have produced a new booklet outlining ideas for how to include accessible information, particularly to engage older people with learning disabilities.

Bee Together is a Time to Shine project working with older people with learning disabilities. One of the findings from the project was that people needed accessible information in order to more easily join in local groups and integrate into their community. This will help to make them feel less isolated and lonely.

Easy Read information is a good way to make information accessible. This sort of information is of use to people with dementia, sight loss, hearing loss, those with English as a second language and those with learning disabilities.

The booklet features examples of create and use this type of information. It also includes details of websites and groups who create easy read accessible information.

You can download the booklet here.
