Cultural understandings around the causes and impact of disability can lead to discrimination against people living with a disability and their carers. This, in turn, can stop people from accessing services for fear of facing their community’s disapproval.
In this video, a young woman of Muslim background talks about living with vision loss, and how having a guide dog has at times created difficulties with her Muslim friends.
