Important Update

Borderline has long shared the charitable objective of helping Scots in London in need, alongside its sister charity ScotsCare, also known as the Royal Scottish Corporation, and has a close working relationship to achieve this, with shared offices, staff, and resources.

After careful consideration by the Trustees of both charities a merger of the two was decided upon as the best way to achieve our objectives: a single charity that can use the professional resources of both to ensure an economic, effective, and efficient delivery of a client-focused ‘one-stop shop’ of support services for Scots in need across London.

We are extremely pleased to announce that as of today, 1st April 2023, Borderline and ScotsCare have merged to form one charity under the name ScotsCare. Please be assured that Borderline’s operations will continue exactly as they are, with no changes to staffing, including our Outreach workers Alex and Patricia, location, resources, or partner agreements. Homelessness provision will be one of the key ScotsCare services, alongside existing services including: financial grants, advocacy, counselling, sheltered housing, befriending and social events.

If you are a current Saltire Donor Club member, please be confident that your valued donations will continue to support our homelessness services.

If you would like to join the Saltire Donor Club, your donations will be used more generally across the range of services, including homelessness, that are provided by ScotsCare. For more information, please contact our Senior Fundraising Officer Jacqueline Walker here

This website will close at the end of June, please see the ScotsCare website for full homelessness service details.
