Projects and services

We offer a full range of editorial, design, production and project management services including production of easy read and easier to read materials in a range of formats.

Katie is an approved writer and supplier to Mencap, collaborating on a number of different easy read projects with them including a range of key adult social care support leaflets.

Natural History Museum - Images Of Nature

Katie Grant from Raincharm was invited to join an accessible consultancy team to advise on the design and interpretation of a new gallery at the Natural History Museum (NHM). As a result of this team collaboration, the interpretation department at the NHM then went on to commission Raincharm to produce an easier to read guide to the gallery. Epigram Communications in Manchester worked on the design using easier to read text written by Katie. The resulting booklet is a groundbreaking piece of accessible literature. Combining product durability (the booklet is matt laminated and ring bound) with exquisite design and easy to read copy, the booklet has been a great success providing an excellent support for visitors with different impairments and reading skills.

Imperial War Museum North Accessible and Easy to Read Guide

We were asked to produce a guide to the Museum using clear, easy to read language. This was aimed at a range of audiences with different information access needs. Working closely with Museum staff we reduced the core information elements about the Museum into this concise, clearly designed and Easy to Read booklet.

James Street Housing Project Harassment procedure

We were asked by Mencap to write an Easy Read guide to help residents at a housing project in Blackburn understand about their rights. We converted the text into an Easy Read format from the main harassment procedure which was then checked and amended by Mencap. Images provided courtesy of Photosymbols.
