Fife Centre for Equalities

Fife Centre for Equalities (FCE) was established in April 2014, as a joint initiative between Fife Council, Fife Voluntary Action and NHS Fife, to work with partners to develop more inclusive and responsive services for people in Fife, and to build a positive picture of Fifes modern and diverse population. FCE became an independent body on 1 July 2016.

FCE wants to build a collective voice to champion equality, diversity, inclusion and social justice. The centre provides practical guidance and support to everyone working to tackle inequality; here in Fife, and beyond. We want to:

  • Make equality a normal part of everyday life in Fife
  • Promote the rights of individuals, because everyones story is unique
  • Help communities make their voices heard, and have their say in the planning and delivery of local
  • Develop relationships with partners and stakeholders from public, private and third sectors to advance equality, diversity, social justice and community cohesion.

Current opportunity

This is an exciting opportunity for volunteers from all walks of life to come together and meet with some of the older members of our community. Fife Centre for Equalities (FCE) want to find volunteers to befriend members of our Minority Ethnic 60+ project. This project will help older people from minority ethnic communities to build meaningful connections, reduce social isolation and improve mental and emotional health, by holding monthly get togethers where project members and volunteers meet, chat, eat and participate in various artistic workshops. So, if you’re interested in hearing more about other cultures, if you’re an ethnic minority yourself or you can speak additional languages or are interested in working with interpreters and translators to build relationships, FCE would love to have you join them on this amazing volunteering project.
