Interest Link Borders was founded by carers in 1990 and improves the quality of life of children (aged 8+), young people and adults with learning disabilities and their carers in the Scottish Borders through volunteer friendship/befriending projects.  The charity has developed their service model well beyond classic 1:1 befriending to include young volunteers, groups and overnight trips. Their projects enable friendships that are real, equal and sustainable and develop the relationship & communication skills of all involved.
