Please sign the NALA petition for plain English


To mark the start of National Adult Literacy Awareness Week, National Adult Literacy Agency (NALA) is announcing details of its new petition that asks the Government and its agencies to provide information in plain English.
Both citizens and governments benefit from clear information, written in plain English. Citizens are more likely to understand their rights and governments are more likely to make better use of their resources.

That’s why NALA recommends that all public information produced by Government and its agencies is written in plain English.

After all, plain English encourages individuals to engage with public services and make informed decisions when doing so.

It can also save the public sector time, money and possible frustration by having to make repeated requests for information.

So, if you agree with NALA please sign the petition here.
