Fife House Project started in August 2020 and since then we have supported two cohorts of young people. The first cohort are successfully living in their tenancies. Our second  cohort has 10 young people and they begun the programme in the summer of 2021. They currently engage in group sessions weekly, have attended a residential and National House Project and Care Leavers National Conference. 

In August 2021 we moved into our new base in Canmore Street, Dunfermline. The base is open weekdays during working hours for our young people to drop in any time they want. Some of our young people find this useful and some even use it as a safe and peaceful place to do their college work.

The Covid pandemic has been a challenge for several reasons and where the impact has been positive, it has largely been related to the value of relationships and the way that individuals have been supported in, and by their communities. In the early stages of establishing the House Project in Fife it was important that we focused on building relationships and providing the young people with the skills, experience and confidence to move in to, and manage their first home and a shared experience with other young people leaving care to avoid the isolation that so many experienced.

The House Project approach is relational and was from the outset co-designed with groupwork as a key tenet to develop communication skills and relationships. With this as a focus we are pleased that young people often describe their House Project experience as providing a sense of belonging and of being part of a family… Despite challenges being thrown our way we were able to think creatively to ensure we could still be a success.

We are pleased to report that our current cohort are in the process of moving into there new homes!
