Amazing! Thanks @MarthaJAbbasi & @glasgowcathcart for all you're doing to support 70/30! We can't wait to get an #ACEs prevention Cross-Party Group off the ground in @ScotParl this year. #letsbreakthecycle for all our communities 🙂 @GailRossSNP #PreventACEs

What we want for our own children we should want for all children. Why should our aspirations and expectations be any different? Why should our care and love be different?
