Fife Centre for Equalities is carrying a study of people aged 55+ with experience of living, working or studying in Fife. We are hoping to improve the understanding of the different experiences of moving through life for people with protected characteristics.
What is the purpose of this project?
The Different Paths study starts from a series of interviews where we ask several questions with the aim of developing a better understanding of how protected characteristics can affect ageing.
Why is it important?
Lived experience is invaluable in building practical knowledge on equality and inclusion. People will be able to learn from experiences in every key aspect of our daily lives and help make life fairer and more equal for others, as well as demonstrating just how diverse the people of Fife are.
Who took part in the consultation?
We have been interviewing people who are 55+ with the experience of living, working or studying in Fife. We have looked for participants from across all the seven localities and with a range of protected characteristics under the 2010 Equality Act.
We won’t be taking on any new interviews, however, keep posted for snippets, clips and photos on our website and social media pages!

As a little thank you, we have given every person taking part a £20 voucher to be redeemed in any shopping outlet of their choice in Fife.
