Many readers will already be aware of the Responsible Reform Report – also known as the Spartacus Report – a detailed investigation into the Government’s consultation on Disability Living Allowance (DLA) reform.
The report has seen a huge wave of support on Twitter from activists and celebrities like Stephen Fry, which has led to the media – ranging from The Guardian to the Daily Mail – finally giving the real concerns of disabled people the recognition they deserve.
However, some people won’t have had the chance to read the report first hand, such as people with learning disabilities, low literacy or visual impairments, who may find reading dense text difficult and prefer more accessible “easy read” formats.
