MECOPP (Minority Ethnic Carers of People Project) would like to announce its brand new publication.
Lost in Translation: Making Self-directed Support work for BME Communities aims to help practitioners who support people from BME (Black and Minority Ethnic) communities who may be assessed as eligible for social care support from their local authority. The individual and group exercises, case studies, quizzes, and strength based models in the toolkit have been developed to increase the knowledge and understanding of the specific issues affecting BME carers and service users and how they can be proactively addressed. We do have limited FREE copies to give away to those who would like to use our toolkit as a training guide. Alternatively, you will be able to access this working document online at http://www.mecopp.org.uk
MECOPP is Scotland’s only dedicated Minority Ethnic carer’s organisation and we provide a wide range of services from our Edinburgh base, including multi-lingual advice and information; advocacy and casework support; and education, training and learning opportunities.
If you would like further information on our training programmes (including Cultural Competency), our toolkit or any of our other Self-directed Support publications, please do not hesitate to contact Michelle Coup via
