Easy Read Leaflets

We want our information to be accessible to all so we have produced some basic leaflets in an Easy Read style - large font, clear illustrations, plenty of white space and language that is simple to understand.

Intended for adults as well as children, these were developed and trialled with pupils with Additional Needs in Sussex and proved a great success.

The leaflets can be used within lessons, to demonstrate the work of the Commission.
