A personalised financial advice service is now open for low income families and older people.
The new Financial Health Check service is funded by the Scottish Government for the next two years.
Low income families and older people can get personalised advice on money matters, from reducing household energy costs to accessing grants such as the Best Start Grant and the School Clothing Grant. This will help people avoid the “poverty premium” of paying more for essential goods and services.
The Financial Health Check service is free and delivered over the phone (free telephone number 0800 085 7145) or face to face at Citizens Advice Bureaux.
