Fife Council

Fife Council

Fife Council is the 3rd largest Local Authority in Scotland and we manage approximately 30,000 properties across Fife.

The Housing Service has a range of housing options for people looking to rent a council home, from flats to houses, sheltered housing for older people, adapted housing for people with a disability, and emergency housing for people in a crisis.

Our aim is to provide everyone with access to good quality, affordable housing that meets their need.

Our three key roles are:

  • Manage landlord services to over 30,000 houses in the kingdom
  • Support and assist over 3000 homeless households a year
  • Lead housing strategies to improve housing conditions in Fife

Further information can be found on our website, or you can call 03451 550033.
