Raise £5000 to Save our Service!
We did it
On 30th November 2023 we successfully raised £250 ( + est. £47.50 Gift Aid ) with 9 supporters in 28 days

The aim of this project is to raise £5000 to build the sustainability of our service, ensure we can continue to see all those that need us.

Project by One Step Borders

We have been running since 2015 and our current funding allows us to facilitate 97 hours per week of support hours, seeing 76 young people on average per week.

The cut in funding we are facing drops those hours to 42, with us then able to see 23 young people LESS each week.


Our capacity to support young people in the Scottish Borders will drop by 23 per week, even though our waiting list consistently sits with around 12 people waiting for support.

We know our service is needed, but the cost of living and the funding landscape makes it difficult for us to ensure our sustainability - £5000 takes the pressure off and means we can continue to see the amount of young people we currently do each week. 

It costs roughly £50 for a 1-1 support session to run, about £3000 per week, so if you are able to help please donate now.
