Events, Activities and Elections

Communication barriers

Reasonable adjustments should also be made to ensure that everybody involved in your events and activities can understand the information you provide and contribute to discussions.

Some actions you could consider are:
  • Having a sign language interpreter available
  • Using a clear font such as Arial and having large print versions of documents
  • Using a clear colour contrast on printed materials and presentation slides
  • Allowing people to ask questions via text message or social media rather than in person
  • Providing easy read versions of documents
  • Sending documents out to people in advance

For an explanation of easy read, please see our glossary.

For guidance on the language you should be using to address people from underrepresented groups please see the Party Culture section of the equal representation tool.
