Farming with Dyslexia

National Farmers’ Union Scotland (NFUS) has created a Best Practice in Communications Guide, which sets out the measures it has taken to make its communications more accessible for members on the back of its successful Farming with Dyslexia campaign which launched in 2014.

By signing the Farming With Dyslexia Memorandum of Understanding on 23 June 2016, EPIC has committed to making all of its communications as accessible as possible to farmers and the wider public.

Memorandum of Understanding 

  • Recognise the principles of best practice in communication in all written documentation or correspondence with respective members and stakeholders.
  • Consider how documents and other communications could be adapted to make them accessible for all, regardless of dyslexia or any other disability.
    Implement these considerations in text formatting and the language used in written and verbal communications.
  • Acknowledge that reform of communications is an evolving process, and regularly request feedback from members/associates/stakeholders in order to inform the process of promoting best practice in written communications.
