You must be 16 years old or above and want to be around friends of your own age and live in the Dunfermline area. We also struggle to provide transport for everyone, so if you can do some travel yourself, that's great, maybe someone can help you onto the bus and we can meet you at the other end, maybe you live close by and can walk or maybe someone can drop you off and pick you up.
We don't have set times or days that you would be out with us, it would depend on what you like to do and the days/nights you are available. All our members and volunteers help us decide what activities we will be doing so you can have a say in the things you like to do.
