   Easy English Project Development 

  • We interpret any document into Easy English
  • Documents need to be understood by everyone
  • Consumer Reviews of the effectiveness of Easy English
  • Mentoring organisational change




   44% of Australian adults                         (15-65 years old) do not have the           literacy skills to read a range of             day to day reading tasks.

  This equates to 7.3 million adult            Australians in 2013.
