Fife Employment Access Trust (FEAT) was set up in 1994 by a small group of people concerned about the lack of employment opportunities for people in Fife who had experience of mental health problems. Some of this group had personal experience of mental ill health - and were all too aware about the problems of finding a job and the stigma that prevailed. Today, we have over 23 years of experience of directly supporting people with mental health problems to find and sustain work.
FEAT's vision is to enable and support individuals to reach their full positive mental wellbeing in a culture where there is no stigma.
Employing an inclusive, non-judgemental approach to prepare, support and empower people to flourish by managing their mental health for life - whatever life does, by:
Working with others to eliminate the stigma on mental health in the workplace and communities
Providing service users with strategies and tools to improve their resilience and employability
Creating safe, nurturing, supportive and compassionate environments to encourage personal growth
Developing strategic partnerships with complementary and diverse organisations that share our vision
Supporting the welfare and continuous professional development of staff and volunteers so they may continue to provide exceptional services
