Galashiels reprieved care service to close

A care service for children and young people in the Borders is to close just weeks after celebrating a reprieve.

The Galashiels base of the Princess Royal Trust Young Carers Project will shut on 31 March.

The service was facing the axe under council cuts last month but money was found to keep it in operation.

However, a tendering process conducted by NHS Borders and Scottish Borders Council has now awarded the contract to another provider.
