Community support service
Social Work Community Support Service offers a service to adults aged 16-65. We provide help in the day time, evenings or weekends to people with any of the following:

The Community Support Service is available within the local community where you live. We'll offer support to allow you to take part in activities that you have an interest in. There are a choice of facilities depending on the activity:
- community centres;
- sports centres;
- theatres; and
- other venues.
We manage facilities in Fife on an area basis East, Central and West and include:

Person Centred Approach
We get to know you as a person, and then look at what kind of activities you would like to do.
We will also look at what specific needs you may have and how we can meet them. For example if you need assistance with personal care etc. We will work with you to plan what you would like to do while you are with us. We will then follow this plan as much as we can to make sure you can do the things you want to, at a time that suits you!
Access to this Service
An assessment will determine whether we can provide a service or not. A Social Worker will complete the assessment paperwork. We will work with you to develop a support plan that can meet your needs.
You can also arrange a visit to see us. See contact details below for Community Support Managers.
Employment through the Community Support Service
We have a dedicated Work Option Team in each area lead by 1 Work Option Coordinator (Fife Wide) who will ensure support is available for any individual who has an aspiration to find voluntary work, vocational opportunities and employment.
