Is Having a Disabled Partner a Burden? BBC's Ouch Podcast

February 28, 2018

When disability is talked about the focus is normally always on accessibility, disability rights or mental health issues connected with a disability.

Listen below to find out how Candy reacted when someone assumed she was either a carer or getting paid for being with her partner. What special circumstances led to Mel being particularly positive about dating a disabled man. And how Jo thinks communication is the absolute key.
