Warm and Well Borders will target vulnerable groups specifically through health and social care partnerships, to provide support and advocacy, and to tackle fuel poverty. Project officers will broaden referral pathways working cooperatively with the local voluntary sector, social housing providers, and community health and social care practitioners to extend the reach of the project and share project results. Warm and Well Borders will be delivered through a partnership between Scottish Borders Council, Changeworks, three local Citizens Advice Bureaux, Home Energy Scotland, health and social care teams and community health organisations.
