Improving the lives of unpaid carers and disabled people by giving help, advice and access to learning.
Services for children and young people with additional support needs over the age of 5 years old, living throughout North East Fife. Please note families cannot self-refer, therefore need a colleague from the 3rd sector to refer them.
Home-Start East Fife provides support for families with pre-school aged children. Support takes two forms: home-visiting and Family Support Groups. Home-visiting volunteers visit families in their own homes once a week to offer friendship and support, whether parents need an extra pair of hands, help to get out, or just some adult company and a listening ear. Home-Start East Fife Family Support Groups are only for families referred to Home-Start East Fife; they provide a safe and stimulating environment for our parents and their pre-school children. Within the groups, our Family Support Group Co-ordinator and volunteers organise activities aimed at improving parenting skills and promoting positive interaction between parent and child and within their peer groups.
Providing emotional and practical support to lone parents and families in need, to provide children in Fife with the best possible start in life.

health. The service welcomes carers who have a loved one with a diagnosis or those on the diagnosis pathway. They offer up to six free 1:1 sessions, where they help Carers with self-help techniques to manage any difficulties clients are experiencing.
