The aim of the pilot is to provide information relevant to the sector, such as funding streams, volunteering, training, job vacancies, campaigns and consultations.
The newsletter will also provide a vehicle for third sector organisations, such as charities, social enterprises and community groups, to promote the work that they do.
The Awards for All grant will meet the set up and production costs of three issues of the newsletter, with the intention that the project will become sustainable through advertising and sponsorship.
Director Kathleen Travers said: “We are delighted to receive this funding from Awards for All. In the coming weeks we will be talking to key stakeholders about the project and what we hope to achieve.”

We would like to acknowledge help from Business Gateway Scottish Borders and Jean Robertson, Funding Officer at Scottish Borders Council, for making this happen!
