Disability charity publishes free easy read guide on EU Referendum 23rd June

The national disability charity, United Response, has published an easy read summary covering the forthcoming EU Referendum.

The summary is the sixth special edition of Easy News, an award winning accessible magazine created by United Response to make news and current affairs easier to understand for the 1.5 million people with learning disabilities in the UK; many of whom find traditional sources of news complex and difficult to understand.

This special issue of Easy News removes the jargon, rhetoric and opinion from the political debate surrounding the EU Referendum.  By using simple words and images, the special issue explains the key arguments for the “Britain Stronger in Europe” and “Vote Leave” campaigns, along with outlining what the referendum is, and what the EU does, so that people with learning disabilities can be better informed and engaged in the debate ahead of EU Referendum vote on Thursday 23rd June.
