Community Fund Project in:
Glenrothes, Kirkcaldy, Rosyth
Fife Shopping and Support Services (FSSS) provides frail and housebound elderly people and disabled across Fife with support to maintain independence within their own homes. They assist with shopping, pension collections, housework and befriending.
We have given them a grant from our Community Fund to carry out a series of consultations across our retirement courts in Fife. The consultation will then inform a series of events and activities that will take place. Their aim is to have a volunteer come to each of our courts once a week to deliver organised and structured events with our residents. While this will be hugely beneficial to our residents the service also aims to engage with local communities of all age groups to encourage participation and volunteering opportunities. This will provide intergenerational activities and the reduction of social isolation amongst some of our residents.
