Easy Read

I can convert any document, of any length or complexity into an Easy Read format, featuring:

  • large print

  • everyday language

  • Photosymbols

  • your unique branding

Typical projects include leaflets, strategies, letters, meeting minutes and agendas, surveys, consultation documents, posters, reports and academic papers.

I can turn around your project quickly and with minimum fuss.

Plain English

I can re-write your report, strategy, academic paper or business plan into "everyday" English which is easy to read for people with average literacy skills. If needed, this can then form the basis of an Easy Read document, language translations, or web pages.

As with Easy Read, I supply fully branded documents, in any format you require.

As a freelancer, I bring a fresh pair of eyes, which makes it easier to de-clutter your documents!

I typically: 

  • reduce word-count

  • take out repetition

  • remove jargon

  • re-structure, if needed

One hand typing, one hand writing


I offer training courses in Easy Read design and plain English writing - from a 1 hour webinar, to full day workshops in a location of your choice.

All training is tailored to the needs and demands of your organisation. We can start with a meeting to talk about your requirements, expectations and your teams. Book a meeting here.

After the training, I provide a full report of attendees and their feedback.

"I found all the information that Clare shared was useful! Getting to see examples was great and learning what fonts, software and image sites to use was super helpful."

Graphic Facilitation

Graphic recording is a brilliant way to help a person to participate in their life plan, assessment or review - especially if they struggle with language.

The drawings can be kept as a record of the meeting.

It is also frequently used by businesses to capture their brainstorming and planning meetings. My management background and MBA qualification, combined with design and facilitation skills are a winning combination for your away day!

Contact me if you have a project in mind!
