Fife centre

V1P Fife is based in Cardenden and was established in January 2016. It provides veterans services throughout the Kingdom of Fife.

Our team consists of veterans peer support workers, clinicians, therapists and administration team.

We provide

  • Information and signposting
  • Understanding and listening
  • Support and social networking
  • Interventions to improve health and well-being

 

We are pleased to be able to say that the V1P Fife Service is now re-mobilising following its temporary suspension over recent weeks. We would like to thank you for your patience and understanding during this time.

All veterans registered with V1P Fife will receive a letter over the coming days to explain how the service will run and what you can expect. We value your feedback on all aspects of the service so please do get in touch.

Service Update in Brief

Communication: To be in line with social distancing guidelines, staff are not currently based at the Cardenden Office. Veterans now have the option of communicating with V1P staff either by video-call or by phone. Please do get in touch if you would like to discuss any aspect of these changes with a member of the V1P team and/or if phone or video-calling do not work for you. To speak to a member of staff please call 01383 565 128 (Monday-Friday 9-5pm) or 07976 739 583 (Mon, Tues, Thurs and Fri, 9-5pm) or email Fife-UHB.Veteransfirstpoint@nhs.net 

Peer-support worker support: will continue by appointment using video-call or phone. Please call 07976 739 583 (Mon, Tues, Thurs and Fri, 9-5pm) if you are registered with V1P and feel you would benefit from support.

Psychological therapy: Therapy is now being offered through V1P using video-call or phone. If you were receiving therapy before the service was suspended or are on the waiting list for therapy, a member of the clinical team will shortly be in touch with you. If you feel you would benefit from therapy, do speak to your GP or peer support worker about this.

Community drop-ins: the drop-ins at Dunfermline and Kirkcaldy are temporarily on hold until government advice allows for larger groups of people to gather. We are monitoring government advice closely and will look to reinstate the drop-ins as soon as it is safe to do so.

New V1P referrals: The service will be open to new referrals from the end of July 2020.

The V1P Fife drop-ins are on hold at present, to be in line with Scottish Government's current COVID-19 guidance on social distancing.
 

We very much appreciate the value to veterans of these drop-in spaces and plan to reinstate these as soon as it is safe to do so. 

In the meantime, do stay connected to others (veterans, family & friends) when and where you can.
