Embracing Diversity in BAME communities - a new film
GPV is not in itself a faith-based organisation. However, we understand that beliefs exist within some BAME communities, linked to religion, which prevent parents and carers taking control and living positively with their child's disability. Our aim is to end this stigma. We are delighted to launch our short film "Embracing Diversity" as part of a wider project that you can read about here.
Enjoy this short film in which parents speak movingly of their pride in their children.
