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.
  • What Matters Hubs are supported on a regular basis by the British Red Cross. Information is also provided about organisations such as Borders Carers Centre, Alzheimer’s Scotland, Borders Independent Advocacy Service, Chest, Heart & Stroke Scotland and the Domestic Abuse Service. Information about the Local Area Co-ordination Service for older adults and people with a learning disability or mental health issue is also available.
