A FIFE COUNCIL team have won an award for their men's support group.

The Justice Social Work Service is celebrating the win for the work they do with TURN, an initiative set up by male service-users.

Participants had scripted and produced a seven-minute film about their life struggles, as well as sharing advice on making good decisions.

The video was then nominated in the Tackling Inequalities and Improving Health category at the COSLA Excellence Awards.

Lisa McCran, social work team manager, said: "When we shared the film on social media, it got some great feedback.

"We’re all really proud that the efforts of the TURN men’s group has been recognised.

"The Excellence Awards celebrate projects like ours that are improving people’s quality of life and, together with the Justice Social Work Service team, they’re very worthy winners of this award."

The team promote further education as a way into employment as well as other opportunities for people to get involved in their communities.

Learning covers physical and mental health, employability, creative skills, cooking, DIY, and gardening.
