Community Websites

Online Borders provides Community Websites to groups which offer services or activities in the Scottish Borders. These websites are available free and are particularly for community and voluntary organisations. All we ask is that your group is ‘not for profit’, is constituted, and you can identify someone who will be responsible for your site.
