The voluntary and community health sector is a major force in health improvement and health care in Fife, complementing and supporting the work of the NHS and other public bodies.
Wherever you live in Fife, there’s a volunteering opportunity near you. And that doesn’t just mean serving tea in a day centre or working in a local charity shop. These are great options, but there is a vast array of other interesting roles available across the Kingdom. Fife Voluntary Action(FVA) maintains the largest database of volunteering opportunities in Fife and can help you find the perfect one.
FVA is an independent charity that supports, develops and represents community groups, voluntary organisations, social enterprises and volunteering. They work throughout Fife, operating from offices in Glenrothes, Cupar, Leven and Kirkcaldy.
They provide a wide range of support and have expertise in a wide range of skills and topics including governance, funding, legislation, policy, volunteering, managing people, planning and problem solving.
Approximately 80,000 people in Fife give their time freely to organisations every year. While this statistic is impressive, charities, community groups and social enterprises are always looking for extra help from the community to deliver their services. Whether you’re looking to improve your health, become more active, gain some valuable work experience or simply put a couple of spare hours to good use, there are opportunities for you.
