Some experts by experience will not be fluent in English or other relevant languages and will require the services of an interpreter to enable them to access services and for effective communication to take place. For instance, it is not uncommon for professionals to speak unthinkingly when working with older adults and to address their carers or younger family members, rather than the older adult. This practice often happens when a language is shared, so it can become even more complex and important to note, when there is not a shared spoken language between the expert by experience and the practitioner. Working in partnership with an interpreter requires a skill which all health and social care practitioners should acquire through training so as to ensure that anti discriminatory practice is promoted and upheld and that services are accessible to all.
