Triage, which operates in the Glenrothes and Levenmouth area, delivers the Fair Start Scotland programme and supports people to remove barriers that is preventing them to find a job.

The initiative is a flexible employment support service to help people get ready for work and achieve their full potential, with its ethos being that everyone should have the same opportunity to access a job that is right for them no matter what their circumstances. Lee Bernard, engagement consultant, said: "The Fair Start Scotland programme is a Scottish Government funded programme designed to offer individual support to people who are unemployed. “We mostly help young people, lone parents, people with convictions and people with disabilities to find work and if we cannot help them we can sign post them to the relevant service that can. "During the pandemic we have reached a wide range of people who have fallen from employment and have helped numerous people back in to work.” Lee adds that with the power of social media Triage is able to support more people than ever. "The majority of people find us through social media,” she added. "I had one gentleman contact me through social media half an hour after he was made redundant. “When someone joins the programme they are invited to a welcome session and then they will be assigned a key worker who will then guide them through different tasks and courses. These course cover things like confidence building, interview skills and CV writing. “It is not a strict programme, and we offer an individual support package catered to suit the individual person.
