The latest volunteering news from the Borders and beyond 

Volunteer Centre Borders is the first point of contact for volunteering advice, information and support in the Scottish Borders. We work with a range of partners to ensure volunteering is recognised as being integral to the area's health and prosperity.


Our Volunteering Vision
Our vision for the Scottish Borders is for it to be an area that values and supports volunteering, recognising its contribution to personal and community development, encouraging everyone to participate and share in the benefits, and enhancing practice across sectors to ensure quality volunteering experiences accessible to all.
