Borderline was founded in 1990 by The Church of Scotland London Advisory Service (COSLAS) to support homeless and insecurely housed Scots in London.

Borderline works with first and second generation Scots in London to prevent homelessness in general and rough sleeping in particular; supports returning Scots in making a success of their resettlement; helps vulnerable Scots make a success of their decision to move to London; acts as a pivotal resource to the homeless Scots population in London; and provides a holistic service to tackle causes as well as symptoms of homelessness.

Crown Court helps to support Borderline with various fund-raising initiatives.  The Minister is a director of Borderline and two members of the congregation sit on its Board of Trustees.
