Comments from our recent participant survey about the impact of the Awards

'The Awards are the premier industry benchmark for high standards and achievements in plain English. Success in the Awards shows we’re not only doing it, but doing it well and our expertise is being recognised.’

‘When more organisations use plain English it is much easier to engage with the public. There is a public idea that many organisations are hard to work with and waste a lot of their time. Plain English can help make interactions with the public quicker and more engaging.’

‘The Awards give us a standard of plain English to aim for.’
