An Evening at The Dunfermline Hub

An Evening at The Dunfermline Hub

Wednesday 20 March, 2024

Staff at our Dunfermline Hub recently hosted an open evening to showcase the incredible facility and the work they do on a day-to-day basis.

Attended by staff, five of our sponsors, and people we support along with their families, the evening gave people the opportunity to look around the hub and celebrate the positive impact that the service has had on people who require support in the local community. People had the opportunity to thank sponsors for their fundraising efforts and donations which have helped shape the hub to where it is today.

Attendees enjoyed a presentation from George McGarry, Head of Operations Central Scotland which showcased how far the hub has come since opening in 2019, as well as a tour of the building and stories from family members of people we support. Speaking about the Hub and its impact one parent said, “My son hid away in his room. He had no quality of life. Now he is like a changed man, his confidence is amazing. He’s so much more active. I couldn’t be happier and thank Real Life Options enough.”

Our Dunfermline Hub hosts a range of amenities to offer flexible, tailored support. People we support can enjoy a sensory room, cinema room, musical instruments, a beauty room, tuck shop and rooms to relax in! The range of activities available gives people we support the opportunity to learn new skills and be fully involved in the local community. All of this has been possible thanks to the support and kind donations from sponsors and local businesses. Malcolm Slora, Trustee at the Westwood Trust say’s, “After realising what Real Life Options do, we decided we wanted to help. I put it forward to Westwood Trust and we gave the service an £8,000 check for the sensory room.” The sensory room provides a calming and fun place for relaxation, encouraging the people we support to get involved with new activities.

Katrina Clouston, Service Manager for Dunfermline Hub and An Carina says, “I would like to thank all those that have kindly donated to us. Without your help this wouldn’t have been possible. The difference our new facilities have made to the people we support is amazing. Everyone is so comfortable when they come to our day service, we are like one big family.”

A special thanks to the Inner Wheel Club, Westwood Trust, Dunfermline Rotary, Carnegie Trust, Cowdenbeath Rotary, John Gilfillan Funeral Directors, and Fife Housing Group. Each contribution has allowed us to continuously invest in the Hub and helps make a real difference to the lives of people we support.
