Our website: 


Accessible Information

Meet your statutory duty and make sure that consultations and information are accessible to people with learning disabilities. We are experts in making information clear and easy to understand. We have experience of working with a range of partners to develop easy read information and a lot of our documents are used around the country and even the world. We also provide consultations and training around developing your own accessible information.

We produce bespoke training packages to meet the needs of our customers. All our training courses have been designed and are delivered by people with learning disabilities.


We have experience of consulting with people on a large or small scale. We have developed links both locally and throughout the region allowing us to connect with people. Our consultations have helped shape local and regional policies.
