A Fife-wide priority has been identified and work is underway to establish The Well across Fife.

You said you wanted us to make it easier for everyone to access information.

We’ve listened, and working with support from the National Development Team for Inclusion Community Led Support (CLS) Programme, Fife’s Health & Social Care Partnership is rolling out The Well across Fife.

What is the Well?
The Well is a venue where you can drop in and find out information and receive general advice to help you stay well and independent within your local community.

Our friendly, well informed staff will support you to access a wide range of information that promotes your health and wellbeing.

You can find out about:

• Your local community
• Carers support
• Housing
• Living with long term conditions
• Disabilities
• Aging well
• Staying active
• Healthy eating

Benefits to visiting The Well:

• A face-to-face conversation with our friendly staff.
• Staff local to your area, helping you to find the information and support that you need.
• Access to finding out information and support that promotes your health and wellbeing, helping you to stay well and independent within your local community.

Who can use The Well?
Anyone over the age of 16.
