Covid-19 – information for the community in Berwickshire


During this COVID-19 outbreak, Bavs will continue to work with the third sector across Berwickshire. We are adapting some of our services to meet new need.

We have created this page with Face PR to provide an overview of what we, and other community organisations, are providing in Berwickshire. We will post any updates on this page to try to cut down the number emails being sent out. 

If you have any queries please email Please also follow us on Facebook to get updates and news.
