The Fairer Fife Commission, chaired by the Carnegie UK Trust's Chief Executive Martyn Evans, was established by Fife Council to provide independent input into what the priorities for Fife Council should be in tackling poverty and inequality.

The work of the Commission is focused on four themes: place; life courses and transitions; work (paid and unpaid) and being well. The Commission will meet six times between January and November 2015 and will provide a report on its findings and proposals for future activity to Fife Council and the Fife Partnership in November 2015.

The purpose of this call for evidence is to seek the views of those with an interest in and experience of alleviating poverty in Fife, in order to inform the work of the Commission. It is an opportunity to make views known on what the biggest challenges are, what works, what works less well and where there is scope to do more. The Commission is interested in learning about Fife policies, programmes and projects as well as larger projects at a Scottish and UK level. The call for evidence will last for 6 weeks, with a deadline of 22 May for responses. Click here to view.
