East Devon Editors are a group of residents who volunteer to be sent draft leaflets, web pages, reports and posters and give us their views on how to improve them. Sometimes they're asked to attend workshops as well.
They are a really valuable resource to us. Recently we've asked them to help us improve our new website, our annual report we send out to our housing tenants, a leaflet explaining the process of acquiring council property and a booklet explaining how we spend sport and play money from developers involving the local community.
They have all been trained in plain English and to look for the needs of equalities groups when reviewing publications. We will run this training again when we have enough volunteers that wish to join.
Join the waiting list for training to become an East Devon Editor.
