Scottish Borders Health and Social Care Partnership runs a number of 'What Matters' Hubs across the Scottish Borders.

What Matters Hubs offer drop-in sessions and appointments where people can meet with Partnership staff such as social workers and occupational therapists, as well as third sector representatives, to get advice about social care and health services and activities available in their local area.

Information is available about ways that people can be supported to remain independent in their own homes, such as equipment and aids, transport or help at home. People can also find out what is happening locally that would enable them to take up a new interest, get some exercise, meet new people or take part in a volunteering opportunity.

The hubs are supported by organisations such as the Red Cross, Chest, Heart and Stroke Scotland, the Borders Community Capacity Building team, Alzheimer Scotland, Borders Carers Centre and Domestic Abuse Service who will be able to give advice/support or signpost to other organisations which may be of assistance.

Further hubs are planned for rural areas across the localities and will be on a pop up basis.
