What is Muirhead Outreach Project?

Thank you for visiting the Muirhead Outreach Projects website.

We were set up as a registered charity in 2004 by the Directors of Cairn Mhor Childcare Partnership Ltd who recognised that some of their referred children may have been able to remain at home had appropriate support been given. The Muirhead Outreach Project now aims to provide that support to families in the Glenrothes and Levenmouth area.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact us to find out how we may be able to help you. If we are not the organisation best suited to meet your needs then we’ll direct you to the one that is.

What we do

At the Muirhead Outreach Project we believe in getting the foundation right. Our team and families will get to know each other as they spend 8 weeks together learning about:

·        Communication

·        Emotions

·        Routines that work

·        De-escalation

·        Building confidence and self-esteem (in parent and child)


We are the only local charity to work with the whole family.
After one to one work, attending our groups is a great way for individuals to practice their skills, have a good time and gain new experiences.

Who We Are

Muirhead are a dedicated team (made up of Managers, sessional workers and volunteers) who believe in forming positive relationships with families who are experiencing difficulties that could potentially lead to family breakdown.  It is important to us that families feel supported, included and valued. 

Our staff are chosen because they are friendly, approachable and good communicators. They are able to nurture, educate and make people smile!   

All staff receive a foundation of training in child protection, first aid and communication skills. Further training such as mindfulness, attachment, child development and stress management are also offered and encouraged.

As a charity we also have a Board of Trustees made up of individuals from various backgrounds with many years of experience which are complementary to our service.

The Muirhead Outreach Project (Charity No. SC035629) was set up in June 2004 and relies on donations from the public and grant awards from funding applications to carry out the important work that we do with children and families. We are strictly a non-profit organisation and every donation that we receive goes to help the vulnerable people that we work with. If you would like to view our most recent accounts please contact and we will happily email to you.


We rely fully on donations to be able to carry out our work. We are always fundraising! Sometimes it’s a sponsored walk, sometimes it’s a quiz night. Our most recent one was a sponsored Bounce-athon at our local trampoline park! The kids and their families love to take part in these activities and you are welcome to join us. Our manager is also running a series of half marathons in 2018. You can find out more (and make a donation) on our just giving page.


It costs £368 to cover the cost of one child to attend our youth clubs for a year.

For £287 you can cover the cost of one families assessment and foundation work which involves 8 weeks of one to one sessions.

If you are interested in sponsoring a local child (at the cost of £5.50 a week) then please get in touch!

We would not be able to do the work we do without volunteers. We believe that no one has got through life without the help of someone else. Becoming a volunteer with us, means that you get the chance to be impact on someone’s life in a positive way. Our volunteers get all of the same training that our staff get (including child protection, first aid, fire safety and others). It can be a great opportunity to enhance your skills and gain some experience working with families. Our manager started off life as a volunteer with the project!  Please get in touch if you have a few hours to spare.

Job vacancies will be posted on here and on the Facebook page but there is no harm in sending us your CV at any time if you would like to be part of our team.

Where we are

Our office is at the Saltire Centre in Glenrothes and we accept referrals from the Glenrothes and Levenmouth areas. We have a newly fitted kitchen where children enjoy baking and sitting round the table together. We have a larger room that can be used for meetings, training or just for running around! If children want to take part in a quieter activity then there is a sitting room with a cosy fire place and comfy couch.

Most of our work is done out in the community. We might be taking children on day trips, attending a meeting with a parent or meeting the family altogether in their own home.

When we are available

Our office is open Monday – Thursday 9-5 with children’s groups running most evenings. Our groups and one to one work continue throughout school holidays and you might even find us at work on the weekends if we are running training or fundraising events. 

You can email us anytime on

Or call the office (and leave a message if we aren’t available) on 01592 358713
