💛 #ThankYouNicola!

The situation in the state of #Punjab is deeply concerning.

27m people have had an internet blackout imposed, with many of the Sikh population facing a crackdown on their civil liberties.

🗣️"There needs to be building on the recognition that kinship carers have made in Scotland's life."
