Useful Links

We have listed below a number of direct links to a range of agencies and organisations we have mentioned on different pages throughout our website.

These include both Education Scotland and the Care Inspectorate. Both of these organisations are responsible for inspecting each aspect of our service against national guidelines and legislation, and are key in advising us of ways to further improve and drive forward our practice. Their most recent reports can be found in both the Education and Care sections of our site, and together on the Downloads link.

Also included are direct links to awarding bodies such as ASDAN - also echoed at the bottom of each page.

Finally, there are links to a number of organisations we have supported through fund-raising and enterprise activities, such as Kirkcaldy Foodbank and Greyhound Rescue Fife, or who regularly visit us.
