Hi @claudia

Thanks for sharing the newsletter with Choice Forum.

I was interested to read about the Easy Read+ Team. Does the team make easy read documents for other services/organisations?

Is the ‘Our Group, Your Group’. which is mentioned in the newsletter another self-advocacy group? Has there been any Zoom meetings between the two groups?

Hi @claudia

Good to hear from you. I’ve got the same questions as @Neil, so I’ll be very interested in your reply.

Do you work with or have any groups for parents with learning disabilities at Camden People First?

If your team does make easy read documents for other services/organisations, would you like us to add you to our Directory of Services?


Best wishes,
Policy Officer
Working Together with Parents Network

Hi Nadine,

Sorry for late response but I can confirm that it would be of great support if you can add Camden to First to your data base of providers of easy read. We do provide easy read for external organisations and have worked with the likes of NHS England, NHS Bristol, Mayors Officr, TFL and many more corporate organisations. Our easy read is done by our members full Involvement where their skills can be fully utilised, enabling them to develop self-esteem and confidence building skills. We value our members and recognise the invaluable work they produce hence provide them with a financial remuneration.

Our Group Your Group is our partner organisation based in Camden and they are all parents with Learning disabilities.

Hi Claudia,

That’s great!

I’m not sure I have properly understood the relationship between Camden People First and Our Group Your Group?

If you have a look at our Directory, you’ll see examples of what kind of information we include for entries. PDF WTPN REGIONAL DIRECTORY JUNE 2021.pdf (

So, If you can email me the contact details (and any other info) that you would like to have published, we’ll happily put Camden People First (and Our Group Your Group?) into the July update.

Best wishes,

Hi @Neil,

My name is Miriam Abraham and I am the Data Input Analysis Administrator for Camden People First.

In response to your questions, yes we do make easy read documents for other services and organisations as we have provided this service for NHS England, NHS Bristol, TFL and many others as previously mentioned by Claudia.

Our Group, Your Group is a group of parents with learning disabilities who provide peer advocacy support for other parents with learning disabilities. We have not had any zoom meetings with them for a long time.

Thank you for your interest,
Miriam Abraham
