Fife Alcohol Support Service or FASS has served the people of Fife since 1977.

FASS provides a range of services designed to meet the special needs of vulnerable people within the community who are affected by alcohol and substance related problems. The charity also provides help for significant others and carers of individuals in difficulty and for people who are socially isolated and vulnerable.

FASS is run by a Board of Trustees (Management Committee) who are responsible for strategic direction and governance of the agency. Operational management is devolved to the charity’s Service Manager.

Through equitable, accessible, Fife wide services, we will provide information and early interventions, psycho-social counselling and recovery support, for individuals and families affected by alcohol-related problems, substance misuse or adverse health & social well-being, whilst maintaining effective relationships with all relevant organisations.
