Annual Progress Report 2022 - Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse
Keeping children safe should be a top priority for everyone. That’s why we are proud to have worked on the Australian Government’s Annual Progress Report 2022 (the Report) on their implementation of the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse’s recommendations.
State and federal government organisations from around the country contributed to the Report. The concepts they presented were complex and needed to be shared with people from a variety of roles and backgrounds. It was important that we paid particular attention to clearly communicating the intended meaning of the content, in a consistent tone and at a reading level that was as accessible as possible. Our design also needed to reflect the sensitivity of the information in the Report and be trauma informed.
This is the fifth and final Annual Progress Report we have worked on with the Attorney-General's Department.
Our team of writers, editors and proofreaders are experts at crafting high-quality content that still captures the voice of your organisation. With backgrounds in publishing, marketing, journalism, teaching and linguistics, we are well suited to help any organisation with a diverse range of projects. We have worked extensively with government departments and agencies at federal, state and local levels, as well as with clients in the disability and community sectors.
We are also experts in plain language writing and editing. Plain language, also know as plain English, is a way of presenting information that helps someone understand it the first time they read or hear it.
Using plain language makes good business sense. You’re able to communicate well with your clients and customers and give them what they want – information that is accessible and easy to understand. Readers want an effortless, readable and clear writing style. Plain language is clear language – it is simple and direct, but not simplistic. There are circumstances where complex language is appropriate. However, wherever possible, plain language is preferable.
