  • Keen to deliver services from Dunfermline city centre?

    Created: 02/02/2023
    News/Events Category: FVA News

    Fife Voluntary Action is leading a proposal to open a new Hub in Dunfermline city centre to allow citizens to more easily access public services.  FVA will provide core staffing and take care of maintenance etc., allowing third and public sector partners to meet clients, enable staff to hot-desk, have drop-ins/pop-ups, hold meetings, training sessions and more from the Hub.
    This is a well-developed proposal (with funding to be secured) and will be a new version of the former Hub that operated for several years until last summer.  It won't be a large third sector hub like the others FVA operates in Fife, there won't be dedicated office space for organisations, but we are hopng to be able to provide flexible hot desking arrangements.

    Core partners include FVA, CARF, Fife Law Centre, Frontline Fife, Kingdom Community Bank, Social Security Scotland, Fife Council and others. 

    The funding applications have already been submitted, so we're not looking to add partners to make the bid stronger - we are looking to see if any other potential partners might be interested in delivering services from the city centre, from a fully-managed venue to make efficient use of the space and benefit as many local citizens as possible. 

    We know of some organisations that are keen to have a presence in Dunfermline but couldn't justify the cost of their own premises, so this is an opportunity to consider an easier way of delivering services without any of the significant overheads and responsibilities of renting premises.



    We've put together a brief survey to gauge levels of interest - it will close on Thursday 16 February.


    Important: Completing the survey does not commit you to anything - so if this is of interest to your organisation/service, please complete it with your thinking and suggestions.
