Give Fife Gingerbread the vital funding they need to keep supporting Fife Families

Fife Gingerbread, a charity dedicated to supporting lone parent, vulnerable and disadvantaged families are facing a loss of 27 jobs and the inability to continue to support 253 families! 

Despite having supported 739 families throughout Fife in 2018 alone, Fife Council have stated that "it isn’t possible for the council to step in and make up for the loss of external funding" yet the cost to the council if they have to support these families vastly outweighs the funding required by Fife Gingerbread to continue their vital work.

Having previously been supported by Fife Gingerbread and then gone on to be employed by the charity I have witnessed firsthand how truly amazing the work they carry out is. 

Whilst the threat of job losses and loss of services is not quite upon them yet Fife Gingerbread have had to stop taking in new referrals, and so far have turned away 8 families!

We need Fife Council and The Scottish Government to take action now!
