THE people behind a pioneering new ‘easy read’ website for people with learning disabilities are asking users to ‘Tell us what you think’ of the site.
The Staffordshire Cares Purple Pages launched an easy read version of the website in February. Since then, thousands of people with learning disabilities have logged on to find out about what’s on in their area, the services available in their community, how to get help to live independently and safely, and how to get out and about.
Now officers want feedback from users so they can make the site even more accessible, and even easier to use.
The Purple Pages team has worked with REACH, Mencap, and special schools to develop the website, making it easier to navigate and ensuring information on the activities, products and services is suitable.
A series of successful open events in libraries introduced the pages. REACH MP for Burton, David Ravy, attended the event in Burton Library, and said: “I used the new easy-read Purple Pages to look for sport activities near to me. I think the easy-read purple pages are great and will use them again to look for other activities. I like gardening and sports and I can easily find more things to do using the Purple Pages.”
