“This is our Southern Cross” – The Disaster in Scottish Care Homes Closures

Swan Scotland are demanding that the Scottish Government intervene to keep them open. Here’s the campaign petition link.  We are asking you to support this as much as you can, many of the elderly affected have complex needs.  There has been significant press coverage:
