LinkLiving, a national charity which provides care and support for some of Fife’s most vulnerable citizens, is appealing for local artists to exhibit their work at its historic West Bridge Mill base in Kirkcaldy.
The organisation, which works across the kingdom, is in the process of modernising the building to improve the environment for service users, staff and tenants. Launching the appeal, Jacqueline Nugent, Service Delivery Manager for LinkLiving said:
“We help people to manage the challenges of everyday life, supporting them to achieve positive change and be all they can be. Fife’s artists can help us support them on their journey by sharing art which brightens their day, challenges their thinking, or inspires them to achieve.”
Art in any medium can be loaned to LinkLiving for a period of time determined by the lender. The charity doesn’t promise to provide a route to fame and fortune for Fife’s artists, but it guarantees that their work will make a difference to people in need.
LinkLiving offers a range of support services which:
- Enable vulnerable people – many with mental health issues – to secure, manage and sustain tenancies
- Improve the confidence and employability of people who are at a distance from the labour market
- Provide care at home to enable people to live independently in their community
- Provide temporary accommodation for people who are homeless
- Provide befriending for older people who are lonely and isolated
- Support asylum seekers and refugees from Afghanistan and Syria to make new lives in Fife
