Recently we were reminded on social media that from time to time everyone, no matter what their status or role, needs the support of their brothers and sisters. This came as the First Minister’s sister came to her defence in response to online criticisms.
At times of personal or public crisis, more than ever, we need the support of our loved ones to look out for us and protect our mental wellbeing.
Today, Friday 10 April is not only Good Friday, but it is National Siblings Day and children and young people in care across the UK will find themselves living apart from brothers and sisters and uncertain when, or how they will be supported to stay in touch and provide each other with comfort and reassurance.
Here at Stand Up For Siblings we believe that more can be done to protect the rights and promote the wellbeing of siblings. We continue to work together to influence the law, policy and practice across Scotland.
