Who are we? – Fife Hospitals Kidney Support Group is a registered charitable organisation set up in 2003 to help sufferers of kidney disease throughout Fife.  Our committee is made up of patients and carers but also supported by families, friends and medical professionals.

What do we do? – We raise funds allowing us to offer different outings from weekends away, day trips, educational meetings and other social activities to patients, carers and families at little or no cost to the patient.  We are committed to promoting the organ donor scheme, which can transform the lives of those who receive a successful kidney transplant.

How can we help you? – If you are suffering any form of kidney problem we can offer support and information through our regular newsletters and by giving you the opportunity to attend different social and educational meetings and outings.   Our membership allows you to access information through get togethers and meeting people in the same situation as yourself.  Sometimes it is the experience of others that can help you get through a difficult time.  We can also help with information regarding  holidays, insurance etc.

What is IA?The ILeostomy and Internel Pouch Support Group Logo

IA is a national support group for people with ileostomies and internal pouches.

  • Listen

  • Inform

  • Support

Established in 1956 as the Ileostomy Association by a group of people with ileostomies and some members of the medical profession, the organisation now has 54 member organisations in the UK and Ireland.  These local groups are managed by volunteers, most of whom have an Ileostomy or internal pouch.       

This image link will take you to information on the Fieldfare Trust The new 'Phototrails' website, www.phototrails.org - is an innovative concept that allows users to view countryside routes through a series of photographs and descriptions of the path features, taking in surface, path width, gradients, barriers and amenities such as seats, disabled parking, and accessible toilets, all of which, to some, is important information to know before making the decision on whether to visit a site or not. It is hoped that the website will be particularly useful to the elderly and people with disabilities and will allow potential visitors make up their own mind if a trail is accessible to them by using the information provided.
