Communication Support Principles
Recognise that every community or group may include people
with communication support needs.
For example you may be doing the following:
All these groups may include people with communication support needs. So always:
- Adopt a policy of using clear, simple verbal and
written language and design in all communications. This will make it easier for
everyone to access information and engage in events.
- Save time and money by developing a set of templates
for people in the organisation to use. For example for letters, meeting papers, presentations.
- Make sure that everyone involved in the design and
implementation of a public engagement activity understands
the breadth and impact of communication support
needs. For example include it in staff induction and offer training.
- Routinely ask people if they have communication support
