Disabilities and adapting homes
Disability can affect people of all ages, and they, their carers and families can often find themselves in need of support and advice or just someone to talk to.
Disability can be also a bit of a taboo subject, but it shouldn't be. We've tried to keep these pages as factual as possible, without being patronising.
We hope this site gives you good information on the range of services on offer in Fife and we've broken the detail down into headings that we think make sense, but if there's something you think we've missed, please let us know.
Most of the services listed here are led by the Council but some are managed by the local health board, private or voluntary sector groups.
There are also many other useful websites that can help you, such as the Fife Rights Forum which lists all the voluntary advice agencies in Fife, or Ownership Options in Scotland, which specialises in homeownership issues affecting disabled people in Scotland.
The BBC site Ouch! is a good source of current information and is written in an upbeat style, because having a disability doesn't mean you've lost your sense of humour.
