Our work in Parliament is often complex and difficult to understand – but we want politics to be accessible to everyone.
We have worked with the Parliamentary Outreach service, which raises awareness about the work that happens in Parliament, to produce easy read guides. They are here to help you understand about how Parliament works.
Easy read guides
- You and your MP - easy read PDF guide. This is about what an MP (Member of Parliament) does, and how they can help you.
- How laws are made - easy read PDF guide. This is about how laws are made.
- About select committees - easy read PDF guide. Select Committees are groups of MPs who look at an issue or keep an eye on the government’s work.
The Parliamentary outreach team also provide free training for people who want to help people with a learning disability understand more about Parliament.
