Self Directed Support Translation Guide

One of our workers attended a conference last week at which this guide was officially launched by Michael Matheson MSP. http://www.mecopp.org.uk/files/documents/self%20directed%20support/MECOPP_SDS_Translation_Guide.pdf A lot of work went into ensuring that the translations in the guide accurately got the message across to people from BME  communities. The guide is intended to be used along with interpreters to ensure that they are accurately translating the terms. The plain English explanations can be useful when working with English speakers too.
