Bild’s free, online, annual members’ event is a fantastic opportunity for our members to come together, discuss and reflect on work across the learning disability sector over the past year. This year’s event will share updates linked to the key areas of health inequalities; practice leadership; homes not hospitals and reducing restrictive practices.
Making information easy to read and understand
13th December 2023 - online
People with learning disabilities may struggle with reading and understanding complicated language and ideas. This can create barriers in accessing information that is important for their daily lives, such as health, legal or public.
Easy Read uses simple language, short sentences, and pictures to convey information in a way that is easier to understand.
Easy Read promotes independence and inclusion and empowers people to take greater control in their lives.
