Fife Voluntary Action (FVA) is asking Fifers to tell the stories of their experience of living through the Covid-19 pandemic.

Working closely with Fife Council and Fife’s Third Sector Strategy group, it is using ‘Sensemaker’ an innovative software package that will capture and analyse stories from the last eight months.

The project is called ‘Your Story, Your Community’ and the results of the analysis will help improve a wide range of both voluntary and public sector services in Fife for the future.

Kenny Murphy, FVA CEO said: “We have been working with a number of partners in Fife to come up with an innovative way of learning from people about their experiences of dealing with the pandemic.

We’ve seen a huge number of positive stories about communities, volunteers and people coming together, giving up their time to help others, and making their communities stronger to deal with the pandemic crisis.

“We’re interested in how individuals and community groups working alongside public services found new solutions together. We’d like to understand how these connections formed and what impact it had.

"The ‘Your Story, Your Community’ project will provide an opportunity to understand where community service delivery worked well and where it mattered most. By understanding what was important to people, finding out what worked well and what not so well, we can build a detailed and valuable picture of service delivery in Fife.
