Before we launched our app, we presented it to around 30 people from across the public and voluntary sectors. The event took place at West Bridge Mill, Kirkcaldy, Fife on 17th October last year. You can read feedback from those who attended the preview below.
S. Golden, Fife Council: ‘Excellent concept and a holistic approach to help youngsters.’
Jo Anne Valentine, NHS Fife: ‘Great development and definitely the way of the future.’
Sandra Whamond, Skills Development Scotland: ‘Excellent idea! I have recently had experience helping a young person who was made homeless, and finding the right contact was difficult. I would definitely promote this to other young people. Well done!’
Gavin Rennie, Skills Development Scotland: ‘An excellent idea! I think something like this will work because the information has been put together by young people, based on the experiences of young people. It will also be a good source of information for practitioners supporting young people with accommodation issues. Good luck!’
Michaela Livingstone, Link Living: ‘I think this is a great way for people to get information and it covers so much. Well done!’
Zoe Holdsworth, Fife Council Housing Service Commissioning Team: ‘Well done everyone. All your hard work has paid off! Excellent app, the more accessible information that’s available to all potentially homeless people, the better.'
Ian Summers-Noble, Skills Development Scotland: ‘Looks excellent, especially as it’s by and for young people and therefore properly pitched.’
Our app is now live and is available in both Android and iTunes versions.
