The latest volunteering opportunities and news from the Scottish 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 community planning and development.


Time to celebrate!

Volunteers’ Week is a chance to say thank you for the fantastic contribution that millions of volunteers make across the Scottish Borders.
