EYM is a practical and flexible course that helps individuals think about their future goals and provides the opportunity to:
The Fife IPS project is a proven way of helping people, who have a complex mental health condition and want to work, find and sustain employment.
Aimed at people with severe and enduring mental health conditions who genuinely want to gain paid employment. Dedicated 1-1 support from an Employment Specialist enables participants to focus on applying for work in roles that they are interested in - rather than just finding any job.
Journey to Work is available to anyone with a mental health issue and comprises a range of courses with some 1-1 support to help people better self-manage their mental health and focus on gaining work. Participants don't need to take part in all of the elements of the programme, a plan will be created for each individual at the initial registration meeting, and reviewed regularly.
A range of volunteering opportunities exist with our programmes at Silverburn Park, Leven.
Whilst our long-term aim is to regenerate the whole Park and the former flax mill on site, in the lead-up to this we are seeking volunteers to assist with a growing project, general estate maintenance and organising and running events.

If you have a mental health problem it can often affect your memory. It may also influence your ability to think clearly, especially when it comes to performing everyday tasks. Cognitive Remediation Therapy (CRT) is designed to improve memory and boost thinking power, which can give you back your confidence so that you can be more active. This could take the form of returning or starting work, whether it’s paid or unpaid. Or you may want to embark on further education or simply become more independent in your daily routine.
We deliver a range of bespoke mental health related training and consultancy to employers across the world. As well as Fife-based employers, we have delivered training in Dorset and Melbourne in the past year - contact us to learn more.
CRT training is available to health and employability organisations interested in embedding this into their work - get in touch to discuss your requirements.
We also provide mindfulness tasters and/or 8-week courses to organisations which has proved to be increasingly popular.
FEAT are working in partnership with the Coalfields Regeneration Trust to deliver a series of community and environmental improvements to Kincardine and the surrounding area.
Project Leader, Ross Sinclair, heads up a team of Community Maintenance Assistants who are focused on sprucing up Kincardine, whilst also engaging a wide range of accredited training to support their ongoing employment prospects. The project was only anticipated to run as a 12-month pilot, however with service delivery affected by Covid-19, delighted to say the project will now run through to the end of 2021 thanks to ongoing support from Coalfields Regeneration Trust.
All paid positions are now taken up, however there are some volunteering opportunities within the programme and if you're interested, visit their facebook page for further details.
With Covid19 restrictions hampering our delivery during much of 2020, we have adapted the "Employ your Mind" programme to be run fully outdoors and piloting the new provision with veterans from 2021.
Base camp for the new initiative will be Silverburn Park and thanks to funding from the Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust we will run a total of 4 groups over an 18-month period.
We're working in partnership with Veterans F1rst Point in Fife who will refer veterans into the service. Needless to say, being based outdoors means the activities will include horticulture and conservation, however we will embed cognitive remediation therapy and other key elements of the Employ your Mind framework.
We are also looking at other opportunities to run the programme for civilians as well, so watch this space if you're interested in getting involved
in the future!
