Fairway Fife is a Peer Mentoring Charity involving people with learning disabilities from 16 years of age.
Our aim is to encourage and support access to social and leisure facilities within our local communities, enabling our members to strive towards living their dreams through the support of non-disabled peers. We want to make a positive difference by recruiting professionally supported committed volunteers who can support our members on their exciting journey. By using a variety of activities as a vehicle, caring relationships can be formed and both members and peer mentors' lives may be enhanced from the benefits gained, helping them all to achieve their highest potential.
