Shergroup’s Clear Communication Triumph: Winning the Plain English Award in 2004 

In 2004, Shergroup, a well-known legal services company specializing in High Court enforcement solutions, was distinguished with the coveted Plain English Campaign Award. This accolade recognized the company’s commitment to producing clear, concise, and easily understandable information leaflets on High Court Enforcement. 

Background | Understanding the Plain English Award 

The Plain English Campaign is a UK-based organization that encourages transparent communication. Instituted in 1979, the campaign fights against the use of jargon and confusing language in public documents. The Plain English Awards, one of the initiatives of the campaign, acknowledges organizations that have made significant strides in ensuring that their communication is accessible and comprehensible to the wider public. 

High Court Enforcement | A Complex Topic 

High Court Enforcement can be a perplexing subject for many. It involves nuanced legal proceedings and regulations pertaining to the enforcement of court orders and judgments. Shergroup, being deeply involved in this sector, recognized the importance of making information on these complex topics accessible to everyone, regardless of their legal knowledge. 

Shergroup’s Initiative | Clarity in Communication 

Shergroup took up the challenge of simplifying the language and presentation of their information leaflets on High Court Enforcement. They understood that for individuals and businesses grappling with enforcement actions, clear information is not just a matter of convenience but a crucial necessity. 

Their leaflets were meticulously designed to distill complex legal processes into understandable terms. Legal jargon was replaced with straightforward language, sentences were shortened, and the structure was designed to guide the reader through the information in a logical sequence. Moreover, these leaflets were not just about words; they also employed clear and informative visual elements, such as diagrams and flowcharts, to further enhance understanding. 

Recognition | The Plain English Award 

Shergroup’s efforts were rewarded when they were presented with the Plain English Award in 2004. This achievement underscored their dedication to maintaining high standards of clarity and transparency in their communications. By winning this award, Shergroup not only validated its efforts but also set a benchmark for other organizations in the legal sector. 

Summing Up | The Lasting Impact 

Shergroup’s win was more than just an accolade; it reflected a commitment to breaking down barriers and making the legal system more approachable for everyone. This initiative highlighted the positive impact that clear communication can have, especially in sectors known for their complexity and formality. 

In the years that followed, Shergroup’s achievement served as an example, encouraging other organizations to prioritize clarity and simplicity in their communications. It illustrated that even the most intricate legal topics could be made accessible to the public through thoughtful and deliberate efforts.
