Easy Read is sometimes called Easy English or simple English.

The Easy Read format presents information in a way that is very easy to understand. In its simplest form, it uses images to support text, large font sizes and plenty of white space.

However, it is also becoming more widely used for audiences with low literacy levels or where English is an additional language.

My experience with a guide dog

Our Inclusion Advisor, David, didn’t think he needed a guide dog. But a conversation with friends and a trial walk with a dog changed everything. David shares his personal journey of meeting and learning to trust Gizmo with us.
