Fife Forum

Charity registered in Scotland SC022596

Fife Forum was established in 1990 as Fife Elderly Forum Executive. This was the umbrella organisation for elderly fora in Fife giving information and advice on older people's issues. 

Over time we introduced an advocacy service. This assists people aged over 65 who are in hospital or resident in care settings. 2009 saw the introduction of User Panels. In 2011 we introduced Local Area Co-ordination for older people in Fife. With the commencement of the integration of health & social care this has been extended to include a service for adults.
