Producing Easy English

The Easy English factsheets were originally produced by Communication Resource Centre at Scope for Consumer Affairs Victoria.

The Communication Resource Centre is part of a state-wide service providing information and resources for people with little or no speech (complex communication needs). It specialises in developing information in Easy English, plain language and other accessible formats.
