Support for Ukrainians in Fife

  • FVA can offer appointments to Ukranian refugees arriving in Fife access to a large choice of donated clothes, toiletries and toys. This is offered on an appointment-only basis - the form on this page must be completed beforehand.

    Sponsors or referrers can complete the form on behalf of the Ukrainian family member(s), but we need to capture certain information to ensure that people have full access to services, we track project usage and we can better understand where families are in Fife. All information provided will be treated sensitively and only shared for safety, security and health reasons.

    We are not able to offer language support or transportation - sponsors need to organise that, or attend with the family member(s).

    FVA can help make referrals and facilitate access to other support - we're here to help.

Who can access donations?

It is only for Ukranian families living in Fife, regardless of the scheme that they used to get here. The family themselves, their sponsor or a relative/friend can fill out the form and arrange the appointment, but we need some basic information about the end-recipients before we can make an appointment.

What is available?

All donated items are available at no cost, with no limitation on how much or how often the system can be used by any family. We have a large selection of clothes for all ages, genders and sizes, toiletries and toys. We don't have household goods - these should be provided by sponsors. We cannot provide money, electronic goods or food.

Is it safe to share personal data on this form?

This is a secure website. We will share data with statutory partners (Fife Council and NHS Fife predominantly) and only for the purposes of ensuring that vulnerable people are known to services so that appropriate support can be offered.

How do I access the donations?

After completing the online form on this page, we will be in touch to confirm a date and time for you and the family to visit our donation store. If you turn up without an appointment we will be unable to assist - there are no exceptions. We cannot offer transport or language support, this must be arranged with the sponsor.

How long does it take to get an appointment?

Appointments are typically confirmed within 2 working days. The appointment is normally for the same week or early the following week. Appointments are only available Monday to Friday during normal business hours.

Need help?

If you're struggling to complete this form or want more information, you can call us on 0800 389 6046 during normal office hours.
