A new Scottish alliance
May 24th 2009
London-based Scottish charities ScotsCare and Borderline (both stockists of The Pavement) have formed a new alliance, working together for homeless Scots in the capital.
The immediate future of the vital services Borderline provides to London's homeless and insecurelyhoused Scots is assured thanks to the new alliance. From 31st March, the two charities will work together, allowing Borderline to continue to provide its services while it mounts a fundraising campaign among Scots in London and more widely.
Peter Scott, chairman of ScotsCare, said: "There is a synergy between our charities and we have worked closely together for some time so this feels like a very natural progression. Borderline will be bringing a wealth of goodwill, expertise and experience to our alliance."
Eileen Ward, Borderline's outgoing director, said: "I am delighted that our work to assist the very vulnerable group that we serve will continue. I believe Borderline will be in an even better position to assist its clients when it combines its strengths with ScotsCare."
