Fairway Fife is a registered charity supporting people with disabilities to access social and leisure interests in their own community. They recruit and train volunteer peer mentors who guide and support their members to strive towards achieving their life goals by accessing everyday activities & experiences such as socialising in the community, outdoor activities, sports, creative arts and other health and wellbeing related activities. By facilitating community-based activities with peers of the same age who have similar interests, they provide a platform where natural friendships can develop, reducing stigmatisation and marginalisation of those with disabilities. The role will primarily involve updating information, adding photos and other information to enable their followers and other interested parties to keep up to date with the Charity and what's going on. This will also involve managing their social media sites such as Twitter and Facebook to help raise their profile and enhance their public awareness.
Training is in-house and tailored to individual through FVA, Fife Council and Youth 1st.
