What needs to be written in Easy English?

This is often a question asked by people new to the idea of writing in Easy English.

Think about your own life.
What information do you read?
When do you need written information?

The answer is - all aspects of your life, whether it is personal, financial, health, legal, leisure or any general time in your life.

Research has shown that people with lower literacy have poorer health outcomes, have poorer understanding of their legal rights and also poorer understanding of their financial rights and obligations, including superannuation, mortgages, insurance, and even everyday items such as mobile phone contracts.
