We’re pleased to launch a brand new easy read resource on the right to accessible information!
We made this resource with a UK wide accessible information campaign group.
It was then also checked by Kirklees Involvement Network. 
We want to say thank you to everyone who shared their stories with us. These are the stories we've put in the guide.

More information

 

What makes information accessible is different for everyone.
There is no ‘one size fits all’ because people have different needs.
Your right to accessible information means that you should be able to get information in a way that is best for you and you can easily understand.
You should be supported to access the information you need. Public officials and public bodies should communicate with you in a way that you understand.
Public bodies are public services like the police, the NHS, social services and local authorities.
Our new guide, made with the accessible information campaign group, will help you to understand what the right to accessible information is and how you can ask public services to communicate with you in a way you understand.
