Peer Support Fife website
started in January 2008, promoting peer support and peer led alternatives in mental health. In response to need we progressed to promoting and supporting survivor, user and carer participation and leadership in service design and delivery. Lack of funding support led to the organisation ceasing active participation in November 2012. The website continues as a news resource and archive.

Road layout data, including data pertaining to the roads' elevation profiles (the ascents and descents), was taken from the 1894 Ordnance Survey Town Plan of Cupar, viewed online at the website for the National Library of Scotland. The rough draft of the road layout which is presented in this video serves as a 'proof of concept' regarding the pertinence of the data which is embedded in the old OS Town Plans.
