The latest edition of Easy News, the world’s first easy read news magazine, is available now.

This month’s copy features news of the terrorist attack in Tunisia, the Greek bail-out and the death of Cilla Black, along with a variety of other national and international stories.

An accessible news publication, Easy News was launched by United Response in 2013, using an easy read format to simplify complex news stories for people with learning disabilities, many of whom find more traditional sources of news difficult to understand.

Translated into easy read by UR Consultants, the magazine provides clear and unbiased information on events to emphasise the importance of current affairs and politics in our everyday lives.

Helping people with a learning disability join global conversations

Diane Lightfoot, director of policy and communications at United Response, said of the new edition of the award-winning magazine:

“Easy News continues to provide an opportunity for people with learning disabilities, and anyone else who wants to, to learn more about what is happening in the world and how it affects us.

“This edition includes some complex stories about terrorism and the international economy and, as ever, the Easy News team has worked hard to ensure that our readers can better understand and form an opinion on important global conversations.”
