Here are some examples of Easy Read documents being used with offenders. They are grouped into categories below.
For (general) Easy Read leaflets on a wide range of healthcare issues you can visit the 'Easy Health' website at www.easyhealth.org.uk. You can download relevant information for your healthcare waiting room and for individual patients'/offenders' needs.
You can also visit the 'Books Beyond Words' website to view the series of booklets they have produced. These are designed to explain certain topics via pictures only - for people with learning disabilities (with a person supporting them to understand the pictures). Criminal Justice related titles include, 'You're under Arrest,' 'You're Going to Court,' and the more recently launched 'You're in Prison' (2013). For more information or to order a copy you can visit their website at:www.booksbeyondwords.co.uk
