A scheme aimed at boosting the health of the north-east fishing industry has officially launched.
The SeaFit programme will be aimed at fishermen and their families and will include dental checks, mental health support and advice on drug and alcohol problems.
Banffshire and Buchan Coast MSP Stewart Stevenson welcomed the scheme, which is being led by the Fishermen’s Mission and the Seafarers Hospital Society.
He said: “The coastal fishing communities in my constituency will now be able to benefit from services which will protect their health.
“I am pleased Peterhead will be at the forefront of this programme which I have no doubt will make a clear difference to the lives of those working in the sector.”
A range of services are expected to be offered on a long-term basis and those interested in finding out more can visit the Sea Cadets building in Peterhead.
