The main funding for the Organisation comes from Fife Council Social Work Department. In addition, applications are made to other sources on a continuing basis to obtain further funding.
Day Centres Service has a full time Manager plus a Board of Directors who are responsible for the running of the organisation.
The aim of the Day Centres is to provide an interesting and stimulating setting within which the members can meet, make friends, become involved in activities and interests of their choice and be supported by the level of personal help and supervision which they may require. The centres which are in operation at the moment are each run by an activities co-ordinator, an escort/day centre worker and a group of volunteers, and are supervised by the Manager.
At present, Day Centres Service caters for up to 140 older people who, because of their frailty, have become socially isolated. We arrange for specialised transport to collect day centre members from their homes and take them to the relevant day centre. Various activities, crafts and entertainment are organised during the day.
