At a packed meeting at the Town House in Kirkcaldy, venue for this year's Annual General Meeting for Fife Alcohol Support Service (FASS), Jim Bett, Service Manager at FASS highlighted the success of the Kirkcaldy-based Charity’s volunteer alcohol counsellors who have served the people of Fife for 40 years.
Jim recounted that “over the years, 200 volunteer counsellors trained by FASS had used their specialist skills to help people overcome their difficulties with alcohol and improve their health and well-being.”
We wouldn't be able to operate our Outreach Counselling Service without our brilliant team of volunteers who give up their own time to help others.
