Coronavirus in Scotland

Latest Guidance

Fife, like the rest of the country is now in lockdown.

Everyone is required to stay at home and can only leave the house for essential purposes including exercise, caring responsibilities and shopping. People can also leave to escape domestic abuse.

A full list of the essential activities can be found on the Scottish Government website.

The Scottish Government asks that you remember FACTS for a safer Scotland:

F] Wear a face covering (unless you are exempt)

A] Avoid crowded places.

C] Clean hands regularly

T] Two metre distance from others

S] Self-isolate and book a test if you have symptoms

Check the Scottish Government website for more details.

Covid-19 Coronavirus Response

Following the latest developments in the spread of the Coronavirus and taking into account the guidelines and directions from Fife Council, the Scottish Government and Westminster, Include Me staff have decided that we will continue to adopt working practices which minimise the risk of spreading infection within the organisation and beyond.

Therefore, for the foreseeable future, we will continue to work remotely. This is obviously an extraordinary situation which will develop and change over time. We will respond to these developments as they occur and will adapt our working practices accordingly.

We continue to accept referrals.

We continue to recruit volunteers.

Please check our website news feed or Facebook page for up to date information.




This year's AGM was due to take place in the summer but could not go ahead as normal due to the Coronavirus restrictions in place.

After seeking advice and guidance from Fife Voluntary Action and OSCR, the Scottish Charity Regulator, our committee decided to hold a postal vote with the members. Papers from the meeting are available to view online.

What is Citizen Advocacy?

​Citizen Advocacy is when responsible local citizens volunteer to be matched with, get to know and support a vulnerable adult* who may experience exclusion or unfair treatment and who needs help to voice their opinions, be active participants in the decisions made about their lives and become part of the local community.


Include Me's role is to create and support ​the development of Citizen Advocacy Partnerships


​If you can spare a minimum of 2-3 hours per month​ and think you would like to become a  Citizen Advocate and make a difference in the life of a vulnerable adult* living in North East Fife, please contact us.

  • Learning Disability
  • Physical Disability
