FIFE Council’s Duncan Simpson has been named Local Authority Youth Services Manager of the Year.

The prestigious award from YouthLink Scotland recognises the work Duncan carries out for the local authority in the Kingdom.

YouthLink Scotland is the National agency for youth work and represents the main voluntary and statutory organisations who work with young people in Scotland. Duncan is Service Manager for Young People’s Services at the council.

Mr Simpson said the award represents the great work that is carried out by all of his team across Fife.

He said: “It’s a great honour and I found myself getting quite emotional when my name was read out at the awards ceremony. 

“It says as much about my colleagues across Fife who are doing a brilliant job in sometimes very difficult circumstances on a daily basis.  The award is really for all of them.”
