A new one-stop-shop for health and social care services information is being launched in Glenrothes on Tuesday 20 November 2018. Fife Health and Social Care Partnership along with the Glenrothes Area Residents Federation (GARF) are inviting local people to pop in and find out more at the GARF shop unit at 4 Marchmont Gate in the Kingdom Shopping Centre from 2-4pm.

The Well at Glenrothes will have a variety of information stands with community representatives, staff from the voluntary sector and others from across health and social care who are ready to chat and help local people with whatever matters to them. 

Cllr David Graham Health and Social Care Spokesperson said: “Fife Health and Social Care Partnership will be working with local communities throughout Fife to create The Wells.  The Wells are access points for people to drop in and have a chat with health and social care staff, supported by partners in the 3rd sector and housing staff who will provide information and help to identify support in their local area.”

He added: ” The Wells will also be a place where local community groups and voluntary organisations can meet members of the public and discuss the support they are able to provide. This could range from how to find out about a care home, equipment to help you or a relative to live safely at home through to befriending or joining an interest group to keep you active. I encourage everyone in the Glenrothes area to drop-in and find out more.”

Dr Helen Hellewell, Chair of Glenrothes H&SC Locality Planning Group,  will open the event with John Mills, Head of Housing Services for Fife Council and Ian Robertson, Chair for Glenrothes Area Residents Federation.

Following the launch, The Well at Glenrothes will be open every Wednesday at the GARF shop unit in the Kingdom Shopping Centre, Glenrothes between 11am and 1pm.

 The initiative is part of Fife Health and Social Care Partnership’s work to connect with local communities.  To find out more visit: www.fifehealthandsocialcare.org/your-community/
