Thank you for supporting It’s Time

Continue the fight in Scotland. Every voice makes us stronger.

We have written to your MP to raise these issues in Westminster.

However, as health and social care are devolved matters, It's Time will be campaigning to influence the Scottish Parliament on these issues.

We'll be in touch later in the year with details of how you can be involved in campaign activities in Scotland.

Thank you once again for standing up on behalf of children who have been abused. The more support we get, the stronger our case to Government.
