Health and Social Services
WHAT IS THIS SESSION ABOUT:
This session covers Health and Social Services - the Industry in which Sign Language Interpreters often find themselves in when community interpreting. It may start out as something like a housing issue - but it can sometimes quickly become something linked to health.
