As the founder of a disability organisation, I am really impressed with Carla’s compassion and dedication to supporting disabled and vulnerable people with their pets. Carla is working towards making the veterinary world compliant with the Equality Act 2010, which is absolutely essential for people’s wellbeing, as well as being the law. Disabled and elderly people - two ‘protected characteristics’ of the Equality Act - often feel completely isolated without their pets. The role of District Veterinary Nurse could play a huge part in combatting this isolation and reducing anxiety for people when their animals become unwell. There are 13.9 million disabled people in the UK alone, many of those with non-visible disabilities, and they/we deserve the care and support which is available to everyone else. I wish Carla all the best in her endeavours.
