Fresh Start Borders is a charity that helps people in the Scottish Borders who have been homeless and are moving into their first permanent tenancy.

We provide starter packs of basic household essentials to clients as they move into their new homes, giving families and individuals, who may have no possessions, a helping hand until they can afford to equip their homes themselves.

Starter packs contain essential household items such as bedding, kitchen equipment and cleaning materials and these packs are distributed across the Borders by agencies such as Scottish Borders Council Homelessness Service, local housing associations and charities.
