Founded in 1807 in Belgium, Brothers of Charity are an international organisation that has been a major provider of care services in the Scottish Borders since the 1950s. They are a charity with a long tradition and a modern outlook that are continually looking to improve and develop the support they offer.

The staff are passionate about supporting people to live life to the full and to always experience being respected, cared about, valued, and included.
