is the only charity specifically set up to help homeless Scots across London.

More than 1 in 20

of the UK homeless population in London is Scottish.

We help homeless Scots

get the support they desperately need to lead a healthy, independent life.

How you can help – the Saltire Donor Club

COVID-19 has significantly impacted our regular fundraising activities. At Borderline, we receive no statutory funding and rely on your generous support. Our support services are still providing ongoing support to our clients for as long as required. We need your help to continue doing so.

 You can support homeless Scots by joining our regular donors club, the Saltire Donor Club and your donation can provide a platform to help break the cycle of homelessness for a fellow Scot in need. Any support you can give now will be especially beneficial.

For the latest message from us, please check updates on our website and our social media channels.

Thank you for your support and we wish you well,

Shona Fleming

Client Support Needs

By definition, homeless Scots are a disadvantaged group, but the problems they face go beyond having no where to sleep:


mental health issues


physical health needs


drug and substance misuse


have been brought up in care


have spent time in prison

These statistics are significantly higher when compared with the UK-born homeless population and highlights why Borderline’s services are needed.
