Accessible Information Standard (AIS)

The Accessible Information Standard tells organisations how they should make sure that disabled people have access to information they can understand and the communication support they may need.

  • Accessible Information Standards were published by the Government in July 2015.  The Health and Social Care Act 2012 requires all providers of NHS or publically-funded adult social care to comply with these standards by 31 July 2016.
