They support families experiencing a wide range of difficulties and stresses including: Mental health issues (including post-natal depression), Disability/illness of parent or child, Family breakdown/relationship difficulties, Lone parents and Domestic abuse.

The partnership will see Home-Start having a trackside presence at East End Park and families receiving free season tickets to attend home matches.

Joyce Munro, Scheme Manager from Home-Start (Dunfermline) said: “Home-Start Dunfermline has been supporting young families in Dunfermline and West Fife for almost 27 years. Our roots are based firmly in this local community and we are passionate about helping parents to give their children the best possible start in life. We are delighted to have the support of DAFC, I have seen first-hand how committed the Football Club is to including the local community. We are excited to begin this new partnership.”

Dunfermline Athletic General Manager, Michael Mlotkiewicz said: “As a Club we are committed to doing all we can to help charities and worthy causes, particularly in our home town, we were delighted to hear about Home-Starts and how they help our local community.
