Angela Hamilton , Fife Council’s Supported Employment Service, Team Manager, said: “If you know a business, organisation or Individual in Fife who excels in promoting the employment of people who face disadvantages in the labour market, then please do take the time to enter these important Awards.

“We are committed to supporting those who work hard to create equal opportunities for all in the work place.    

"We work alongside Fife's employers to make sure people who face disadvantage, for whatever reason, are given the opportunity to secure employment and succeed in a job.
