Helping Communities Work




A project based in Lochgelly is working across Fife to give people support to get a job. This includes training for jobs in specific sectors such as care, construction and health and safety as well as support for CVs, interview skills and accessing web sites for vacancies.

The organisation running the project is Dundee based DEAP Limited which is supported by Fife Council and Skills Development Scotland and is based at Ore Valley Business Centre, Main Street, Lochgelly.

This week MSP Alex Rowley dropped in to see the company and joined with them at a Macmillan Coffee morning which raised funds for the cancer charity.

Mr Rowley said; “I wanted to thank the staff for their efforts in raising money for Macmillan but also to highlight the great services, support and opportunities that are available locally for anyone wanting to get a job. Staff at the DEAP project can offer a lot of support and advice to help and they can also help people access funding for training courses.

“This is a brilliant free service available to everyone in the Cowdenbeath area and I would recommend that anyone looking for support to get into work should pop in or give them a call”.

DEAP Limited can be contacted at Unit 21 Ore Valley Business Centre, 93 Main Street, Lochgelly, KY5 9AF. 01592 786724
