Coordinator's Report
by Katie Thomson, Advice & Information Coordinator
April was a really busy month for us all.  We said goodbye to Juliet, our Partnership Coordinator, who has helped us carry out some work with our stakeholders.  These activities were supported by the Aspiring Communities Fund, and has given us a lot to think about with regard to our stakeholders and what they want out of the Hub. 
We were delighted to co-host an event with LEAD Scotland this month.  Social Isolation & Loneliness can affect anyone – at all ages and stages of life. In January the Minister for Social Security, Jeane Freeman, launched the Scottish Government's draft strategy to tackle social isolation and loneliness in Scotland. The Scottish Government would like your views about what needs to be done to tackle this growing issue.

With Lead Scotland, we're hosted a community consultation event.  We collected information from a variety of community members, who contributed some great ideas on how we can all tackle social isolation together!

And we’re pleased to welcome our new advice session provider, ADAPT.  ADAPT is a project run by Fife Alcohol Support Service, helping anyone who is concerned about alcohol and drugs (including so-called legal highs, and prescription medications), whether its their own or someone they know.  They’re here to help find a support programme that suits the individual, and are here every Thursday afternoon.
