We have clothing shop in the Hub? There’s no prices: pay, donate or create (a display or tidy a stand for us!).

We have clothes for children 0-16 years, boys and girls, school uniforms, plus some smart adult clothes, if you need something for a new job or a job interview!

All funds and donations go to the Fife Children’s Clothing Bank, who help any child in Fife who needs clothes in a crisis.

Did You Know… we have computers?

Katie : 28th July 2017 5:00 pm : Digital Access, The Hub Blog

From our feedback on the Talking Wall, you said it would be helpful to have computers for anyone to use.  So, when we were planning our refurbishment, we included an area for computers!  Anyone can come in and use them – you just need to register your name and contact details, and make sure you sign in every time you come in.

And if you struggle to use a computer or don’t know where to start with computers, pop along for a one-to-one session with our Digital Skills Volunteers!

June 2017 Monthly Report

Katie : 17th July 2017 10:53 am : Monthly Reports, The Hub Blog

June brought challenges for many, especially for those trying to get emergency food.  We sent 20 vouchers to the local foodbank, as many people are really struggling to make ends meet.  However, we noticed a massive decrease in the amount of people requiring help with housing advice, and our partners at Frontline Fife have reported the same.  For the full report – click below:

Overall, we’ve noticed an increase in footfall, with the addition of the Fife Law Centre, Community Job Club and Digital Skills Advice sessions.  Wednesdays are proving to be busy, along with Mondays and Fridays, but Tuesdays and Thursdays proving to be quieter.

We also started a Pop-Up Hub in the Dunfermline Foodbank on a Friday from 4-6pm.  Those who attend the foodbank are getting further signposting help from our workers, and if needed, a referral or appointment with one of our partners in the following week.

If you have any questions about our stats, please contact the Hub Coordinator, Katie Thomson, on 01383 432483, or on info@dunfermlineadvicehub.org.uk

Did You Know… 1in5 parents skip meals during the holidays?

Katie : 30th June 2017 5:00 pm : Advice, Family, Food, The Hub Blog

Holidays can be great – spending more time with the kids, getting out into the sunshine, having fun! But for many parents, it can be really tough to make ends meet. Extra expenses, more food, more electricity with the kids being at home more, can all mount up.  In a recent study, 3 million children in the UK will go hungry, and other studies suggest that one in five parents  regularly miss a meal to feed their kids.

At the Hub, we can put you in touch with a variety of support organisations to help you access emergency food, debt advice, housing, legal help, mental health, filling in forms and finding a job.  We’re here to help you not only feed your kids today, but help you longer term to make the most of your money.

We’ll be open throughout the holidays, Monday to Friday, 10am-4pm.
