Tweeddale Branch
The Tweeddale Branch is based in Peebles and runs its groups at various community venues there.
Mary Mouat Tweeddale Co-ordinator
As well as being concentrated in Peebles, a lot of the Branch’s service users live at Garvald West Linton and its Farm. Peebles High School has been a rich source of young peer mentors, the highest number to date being the 45 who volunteered in 2013-14. The three youth groups, Champions, Frontrunners and Motivators were recently evaluated by Mandy Durkin, who produced a highly visual report bursting with feedback and ideas.  Another evaluation, of the Branch’s adult service is currently being finalised.  Mary has an active events and fundraising sub-committee and runs events monthly throughout the year.
