Sukhvinder Jawanda is the youngest child of Vikram and Parminder Jawanda. She is dyslexic, has poor grades in school, and is bullied often, especially by Fats Wall and Dane Tully. Fats regularly leaves messages about hirsutism, bearded ladies, and lesbianism on her Facebook page. She cuts herself because of the bullying and her feeling that she does not live up to her mother's expectations. She also leaves a message on the Pagford website as "The_Ghost_Of_Barry_Fairbrother," claiming that her mother was in love with Barry.

She is friends with Gaia Bawden and Niamh and Siobhan Fairbrother.

When Robbie Weedon falls into the river, she jumps in to try to save him, risking her life. Her parents become somewhat kinder to her after this incident, and Dane Tully and his friends stop bulling her because Robbie was Dane's cousin. She raises money to hold a funeral for Krystal and Robbie.
