About this event

About the event

You have told us that you want to be able to produce your own easy read materials, as part of the Healthwatch commitment to accessibility and inclusion.

We have therefore invested in training from Easy Read UK who have already worked with local Healthwatch and can offer one place per local Healthwatch, on a first come first served basis and ask that you share your learning with the rest of your team.

As this session will be delivered in two parts, you must be able to commit to both dates as part of the course. The follow up session will be delivered on 10th January 2022, 9:30am to 11.30 am.

Who is this event for?

Healthwatch staff who produce reports, information documents, website content and other materials they would like to make easy read.

What will you learn?

The course will show you:

  • How you can plan and create information in Easy Read using words, images and formats effectively
  • How to get your wording right – Easy read is NOT just writing simply. You will look at key words, simple everyday language, writing style, words to use and those to explain. 
  • How to chose the right images – Images alone do not make information easy read. Here you will look at visual aids, how to use them and adapt them for easy read. 
  • How to layout and format your document – You will look at accessible layouts, different types of documents, standard templates and what kinds of documents need to be designed individually.
