Background

The Fife Advocacy Forum developed out of two Fife Council events in 2011 looking at reviewing Independent Advocacy services in Fife. This Review is now complete and the new Fife Advocacy Strategy is to be launched in May 2014 and will run until March 2017.

The Forum member organisations began to meet on a regular basis and in October 2012 formally agreed their Terms of Reference. There are currently 9 active member organisations and you can find information about the Advocacy they provide by following the links to the right.

The Forum is Chaired by Rachel Annand, Chief Executive of Dunfermline Advocacy who also provide administrative support for the Forum.

The Forum is supported by both Fife Council and NHS Fife, with NHS Fife providing financial support which is in place until March 2017.
