“The team at Writing Services responded extremely positively and professionally to our request to develop a plain English and Cymraeg Clir version of our draft Strategic Plan, with very little notice and an extremely tight deadline. They totally understood the brief and produced versions that could be used to widen access and increase the participation of learners in the development of our Strategic Plan for 2016-19. The work was of an exceptionally high quality and it was a pleasure to work with the team and we look forward to working with then again.” Mark A. Isherwood, Prif Weithredwr / Chief Executive.
WEA Cymru, the adult and community learning organisation for Wales, had recently undergone a massive change, the result of a merger between two organisations. The newly-merged organisation wanted to consult with its stakeholders on its new strategy, and approached us to help in 2016.
Chief Executive Mark Isherwood commissioned us to create ‘easy read’ English and Welsh versions of its Organisational Strategy document. This involved using Plain English and Cymraeg Clir guidelines, as well as following easy read guides by Mencap and the Social Care Institute for Excellence (scie) to produce information in an accessible way.
