Easy Read Guides - Care & Support

Easy read is a way of making written information easier to understand, by using simple language and illustrating the information with pictures. Its aim is to help people, particularly those with learning disabilities, to understand information more easily.

This page provides information in easy read from many different organisations and links to websites that have a library of easy read guides. If you are looking for a particular easy read document and you can’t find it here please email info@essexcarersnetwork.co.uk or call 01255 554029 and we will endeavour to find it for you.
