    A group of young people in Kirkcaldy have created a new phone app which has been designed to help and prevent homelessness in Fife. Mobile Phone In Hand 1

    The app called ‘Living Smart’ allows teenagers and young people to access advice on living choices and steps that can be taken to prevent homelessness. If they are already homeless they can get advice on ways to seek help and keep themselves safe.

    ‘Living Smart’ has been designed and set up by a group of young volunteers from SmartLivng, which is part of the LinkLiving charity in Kirkcaldy and Fixers UK, reports Fife Today.

    The app has just been previewed at an event in the town’s West Bridge Mill and is scheduled to go live next month.

    If successful the volunteers hope the app could be rolled out to more regions to help more people in these situations.

    "I thought this briefing was very good and very useful.  The presentation was clear, well argued and I always find Michael gives me food for thought even if I don't agree with everything he says.  I really like the way he facilitates a discussion in the room and I learn as much from other participants as I do from the presenter which is always good. Right length, right tone."
