Borders Navigator is a new project for Eyemouth and surrounding areas.  We work with local people who are feeling isolated and/or are experiencing low mood.

How Does It Work

Once we have received your referral form we will arrange an initial meeting with our development worker. This will enable you to identify and set goals by agreeing on and developing an action plan. At our regular meetings we will review your progress and once you have decided what type of activities interest you, link you into local area.  This might be, for example, linking you into the Men’s Shed, joining in the local walking group or participating in an art group.

What are the benefits ?

Greater knowledge of local activities

Participation in the local community

Build relationships with others in the community

Increased confidence

Improved mood and general health

Less isolation
