@scotparl is 20 years old and so are we! So it was fitting @ScotGovFM @NicolaSturgeon was our special guest of honour. Here is the first glimpse of the official photos #TPS20 https://t.co/DSGXuYB0mF…/ pic.twitter.com/lYOzU8VlkZ

The First Minister said:
Social care support is an investment in Scotland. That’s why we are engaging with charities, people who use services and all parts of the sector to develop a national programme to support local reform and improve outcomes for people and their communities.
“Turning Point Scotland play an invaluable role helping some of those in society who find they need support at any stage in their life, be it with housing, drug and alcohol dependency or a range of other factors. They do tremendous work and I offer them my warmest congratulations as they celebrate this milestone.”
