Accessible Information

The Friendly information Company has been making information accessible for many years now. We are known throughout the country for our work and have provided accessible leaflets, films, reports and consultations for many government departments and organisations around the UK and beyond.

We are experts at making information accessible and have a team of professional writers, film producers, designers and artists who work in partnership with professional advocates with learning disabilities and/or autism. From start to finish, people with learning disabilities and/or autism are involved in developing accessible information to ensure it is clear and understandable as well as looking great.

We can make your information accessible to all. By using us to make your information or consultation accessible you are guaranteed that not only will it look great, it will be accessible to any vulnerable groups who find written information difficult. This might include older people, people with dementia, people with mental health issues and people whose first language is not English.

We can also audit your current accessible information to see if it is fit for purpose and suggest how you can make sure you meet the needs of the Equality Act 2010 and the people you serve.
