NHS Borders Money Worries App

As part of our ongoing efforts to help children and families in the Scottish Borders to recover from the ongoing pandemic we would like to invite you to download our NHS Borders Money Worries App. 


You can download the App on your personal device by searching for ‘NHS Borders Money Worries App’ on the Apple App Store or Google Playstore.

The App is intended to:

  • Prevent money worries increasing
  • Raise awareness of local and national support


You can expect to find quality assured information about Money, Health, Housing and Work.


The App has been designed and developed by NHS Borders, Scottish Borders Council, Citizens Advice Bureau, TD1 Youth Hub and the Scottish Borders Social Enterprise Chamber.


In response to concerns about accessing current benefit websites a new comprehensive guide to all Scottish and UK benefits for young families has now been added to the Money Worries App under Money / Benefits. All benefits available for families and children from pregnancy to parenthood can be now be found within the pages of the Financial Help in the Early Years guide. A permanent link to this guide has also been placed on all school websites:


If you have any ideas or suggestions for ways in which we could improve the App please e-mail
