Who's it for?

Public organisations

Any organisation that works with the public should have accessible communication materials for emergency situations. It is not possible to anticipate the communication needs of every member of the public.

First Aiders

Any trained first aider would benefit from having accessible communication materials available to them to assist in emergency situations.


Any organisation that works with children can use the images to give children who don't have the necessary vocabulary a way to talk about their medical needs.

People with learning disabilities

Any organisation that works with people with learning disabilities will find the symbols helpful. Symbols have been used in special schools and adult day care for many years. There are many people who rely on symbols as a way to communicate and will already be familiar with the Widgit Symbol Set.

English as a second language

Any organisation that works with people who have English as a second language and who may not be able to communicate fluently on medical topics.

There are 2.1 million people in Great Britain registered with a Communication Disability

and 1.9 million people registered with a Memory, Concentration or Learning Disability.
