Fife Centre for Equalities (FCE) works with partners and communities to make Fife a fair, equal and inclusive place to live, work and study. FCE are looking for volunteer Community Factfinders to help increase understanding about barriers to equality. FCE want you to tell us about your community - this is flexible as you choose who you mean by it and you can tell the story through interviews or photos, videos, music or song. You will become part of a local group and wider community of action researchers and you will access training and support to share the testimonies to bring about positive change. FCE will initially recruit and train 6-8 volunteers and will host an information session on 7th March at 12 noon if you would like to find out more about the project.
