I went to the new Morrison’s in Chalk Farm – the temporary one that’s going to be there for five years. It was very good, easy to walk in to. You had to queue and then a security guard looks at you and then he makes sure you’re okay.

It’s very small and there is a limited of shoppers allowed in at one time. You have to stay apart. I also looked in the car park and I could only see two disabled bays. Then there’s loads of other spaces for cars that can park – about 11 in total – but I am unsure whether you were allowed to park on the other side at the side entrance the way you go out. It doesn’t make it clear where we had to park.

The staff are quite friendly, it’s clean and it’s tidy and there is a variety of food you can get. The only disappointment was that we couldn’t get a large packet of family crisps – we  had to buy either individuals or packs of six.

So I feel this Morrison would be a problem for us because the parking area is not made clear for us to understand as having a learning disability it’s complicated to understand.

Hi. My name is Jill. I work for the Synergy team - a speaking up group for People with Learning Disabilities. I am also a JARGON BUSTER. I go to meetings and to make sure people don’t speak in jargon I have a bell to ring, and Jargon John comes with me. It is very important for me to speak out for people with learning disabilities when it comes to Jargon. In everyday life it is on TV, in hospitals, schools, all over the place. It is my job to stop people using Jargon and use Easy Read with pictures. It is very important for the future. A future where a person with a learning disability can be independent but still get the help they need to guide them in the right direction. Jargon is not a good thing. It is only there to make you look good. People with learning disabilities need to know what is being said in their meetings.
