AIM

AIM wants to provide to the involved organizations the necessary competences to apply and spread the easy-to-read language at a local, regional and national level; and to produce some easy to read resources able to raise social awareness on the topic.

SHORT DESCRIPTION

Nowadays, there is a lot of complex information that many people find difficult to understand. People with intellectual disabilities have low rates of participation in cultural activities and events as a result of this lack of accessibility, as well as a lack of knowledge and understanding of current issues or news stories. People with intellectual disabilities and those with low literacy skills, such as migrants and the elderly, have the right to receive information that is simple to read and understand. To tackle this issue, AIM was developed. AIM is a strategic partnership for an innovation project that brings together six organizations from Italy, Estonia, Lithuania, Poland, Portugal, and Spain to raise social awareness about the importance of easily accessible information. Through local and international activities, the project works to spread easy-to-read language and improve accessible information for all social groups.
