Part 1 of this article presented a survey of occupational therapists working in Glasgow. It investigated their level of contact, language and information services, self-rated awareness, actual knowledge of cultural factors and attitudes towards the provision of occupational therapy to clients of Indian subcontinent origins (ISO). Part 2 investigates the therapists' perceptions of the service and their attitudes towards multicultural awareness education. Seventy-six per cent of the respondents felt that there were gaps in the service to the ISO community and there was unanimous agreement that some form of multicultural awareness education was necessary. Strategies are suggested for an improved service.
