The Care and Support Jargon Buster Guide<https://www.thinklocalactpersonal.org.uk/Browse/Informationandadvice/CareandSupportJargonBuster/> is an initiative to promote plain language use in healthcare and social services. It might be a useful resource for any of your projects and definitely is applicable beyond healthcare.

Some examples:

“inclusion”: “Meeting the needs of everyone in a community by taking action to create an environment where everyone feels comfortable, respected and able to achieve their potential. It means treating people as equals and removing barriers that may stop them participating in an event or activity.”

“Access: The opportunity to use, get or benefit from something. If you have a disability, you may need changes to be made to enable you to have full access to everything in your community, including services, facilities and information.”
