GUIDE DOGS: ACCESS ALL AREAS

Jason is supporting the charity Guide Dogs’ “Access All Areas” campaign to ensure guide dog owners can carry out everyday activities such as travel by taxi or go to the local shops, without the risk of being turned away. Disgracefully three out of every four guide dog owners has been turned away from a taxi, business or service because of their dog. This needs to stop.

Jason met with Sue, Linda and Charlotte who were among 100 guide dog owners who came to the Houses of Parliament to tell about their experiences of being turned away by businesses.

Jason is supporting Guide Dogs’ call for disability equality training, and for offenders to be properly punished under the law when they illegally discriminate against guide dog owners.
