The Friendly Information Company is a Social Enterprise run by and for people with disabilities and/or autism, mental health problems, vulnerable and disadvantaged people of all ages.

It was started by Speakup Self Advocacy, which has over 26 years experience supporting vulnerable and disadvantaged groups. Our aim is to help people and organisations to make their information accessible to all. Making information accessible helps disabled people to be in control, included and will help organisations meet their disability access requirements.


The Friendly Information Company makes information accessible for everyone. We do this by making accessible and high quality films and by making Easyread leaflets, documents, reports, posters and websites.

We have worked for many large National organisations as well as national and local government and health providers. You can commission us to make your information accessible

Click on Our Work link from the menu to see some examples of our work, some of these were produced in partnership with Speakup before we became a Social Enterprise.

The Social Firm employs vulnerable and disadvantaged people. People work with a team of professionals to produce very high quality information in lots of different formats and languages.

Some of the resources we produce are sold through another Social Enterprise called The Friendly Resource Company.
