New easy read booklets for Learning Disability Awareness Week

  • Comment

18–24 June is Learning Disability Awareness Week.



Source: Macmillan

This year’s theme is about helping people with a learning disability, like John (pictured above), get better healthcare.

We’ve launched four new easy read booklets:

  • Talking about cancer
  • How Macmillan Cancer Support can help you
  • 7 steps to equal healthcare (produced with Enable Scotland)
  • Things that are important to me (produced with Enable Scotland)

Easy read uses simple words and images. Although it is written for people with learning disabilities, we know that many other people use it too. Please share these booklets with anyone you support who may find them helpful.

You can download PDFs at If you have any questions, please e-mail
