Our Scottish Borders Services - Covid-19

We are working flexibly with people and can offer support in a range of ways. If you would like to talk to someone about support or for further information please contact us. Call 01896 807 000 or email

This page includes the latest updates from our Scottish Borders-based services. It will continue to be updated, so please do keep checking in.

Wellbeing College

Personal Tutors are offering one to one telephone support for 30 minutes. The focus of these calls will be to offer a space to check in about your general health and wellbeing and also to ensure you have access to the resources and support you need just now.

Tutors will also offer a space to consider what they might focus their time and their minds on over the coming weeks, perhaps considering reconnecting with an old friend on the phone, giving a jigsaw a go or getting the old photo albums out for a bit of air. Whatever it is, the Personal Tutors will be there to help you make this possible.

We will also be sending out regular newsletter updates via email which will share helpful, tips, ideas and resources over the coming weeks. You can register by emailing us at the address below.

Our courses are going digital! Keep an eye out on our website for some short online sessions delivered to you by our Personal Tutors which we will be adding to regularly.

For anyone interested in a Personal Tutor appointment or to join our Newsletter Mailing list, you can email or call 01896 807 000.

Connect Well will offer regular weekly social support, information and signposting via telephone, sms, social media or video from our Social Prescriber Rachel.

Rediscover Borders

Rediscover is offering telephone support to existing clients and volunteers on a weekly or fortnightly basis.

New referrals will be contacted via telephone and can be provided the opportunity of distance befriending for the duration of social distancing measures. This can be delivered to you via telephone or video support with either a staff member or one of our volunteers. These matches will be reviewed regularly and will come to an end when face to face matches are possible again.

If you live in the Scottish Borders and would like to volunteer with the service and offer telephone or video support to someone who is feeling isolated just now please drop us a line using the details below. We’d love to hear from you.

Call 01896 807 000 or email for further information.


To keep supporting people who use our Resolve service, we are now offering telephone and video counselling. We understand that this isn’t suitable for everyone, and some people have opted to put their counselling on hold until face to face counselling is available.

All new clients who are ready to start counselling will be offered telephone or video counselling until face to face counselling resumes.

If you need any further information, please contact our counselling team who will be happy to answer any of your questions. Email or call 0131 225 8508 and ask to speak to a member of the Counselling Team.

More information about Resolve Counselling can be found here.
