How we can help you

We have three distinct projects within Fife Visiting Support Services:

Short-Term Housing Support is available for approximately six months to help people develop the independent living skills they need to live well in their homes.

Our Care at Home Service supports people over the age of 16 with a range of challenges or disabilities to remain independent in their own homes.  

Our Fife Refugee Resettlement Project supports refugees and their families based in Fife to live independently in Scotland.  The service supports people from their arrival in Scotland to becoming part of their communities, moving on to employment, studying, and volunteering.

It has made such a difference to my life and my relative's life knowing that we have support coming in. It has really helped and they are so caring and supportive.

I write as a service user of LinkLiving to give thanks for their amazing help and support during the months of lockdown. My support worker kept me going day after day, week after week, when all my other friends and supports were missing. Not only did she phone me almost every day, encouraging me to get out of bed or do chores, not only did she give a sympathetic ear to all my problems and concerns and feelings, she also quite readily and willingly went to the shops to get things for me, like toiletries or medicines. She has been so reliable and helpful, and then she started seeing me in the garden as soon as she could: sometimes from week to week I saw only her. She became my one 'friendly face' in a long time of incredible loneliness and isolation. I honestly would not have got through it without her!
