Ministerie van Huh? Legal affairs

For people that are functionally illiterate, it can be difficult to participate in society. The problem is often directed back at the person involved. The Ministerie van Huh (Ministry of Huh) takes a different approach; functional illiteracy as an organisational problem. What can organisations do, to limit the consequences of functional illiteracy?

‘Juridisch moet het wel kloppen!’ (It needs to make sense juridically!’) is an often heard slogan in public communication. But is it true that everything needs to make sense juridically? Aren’t we over-complicating things? In which ways can we make sure that a message makes sense, but can also be understood? What is the area of tension between jurists, professionals and clients?

With the new programme ‘Huh, wat bedoelt u’ (Huh, what do you mean), Breda offers resilience to all those that are functionally illiterate. Four in-depth workshops closely examine the combination of functional illiteracy with legal jargon, visual language, customer service and safety. During these workshops, participants will share their experiences and experts will shed light on the topic. People that are functionally illiterate will give their feedback. The acquired knowledge and experiences will be incorporated into the ‘Huh, wat bedoelt u’ programme.

This workshop is fully booked!
