Clackmannanshire Citizens Advice Bureau: ‘Money Advice Matters’ Campaign

MCC has been made aware of a new campaign being supported by the Citizens Advice Bureau.

The following information has been taken from a letter issued by the Managing Director of the Clackmannanshire Citizens Advice Bureau and provides links to information intended to support anyone who may be affected by the issues raised or who may be looking for advice on financial support.

As you know the disruption and uncertainty resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic have had a severe impact on the incomes and living costs of citizens in Clackmannanshire many of whom may already have been facing economic hardship.

To support our community the Citizens Advice network in Scotland is running a national ‘Money Advice Matters’ campaign from 31 May to 11 June.

As part of this campaign, we will be raising awareness of the support we provide to people worried about bills, arrears or debt piling up. We want people to know that our trained volunteers and staff are here to help with their money worries.

Our advisers will talk through options, check for ways to increase income and help make a plan to improve their situation. In addition to this free, confidential and impartial advice we also provide a range of free and easy to use online tools:

  • Our public advice site which includes information on getting help with debt, mortgage problems, budgeting and what to do if you can’t pay your bills
  • Our Money Map tool directs users to online help and ways to make the most of their money, decrease their bills and help meet the costs of daily living
  • Our Council Tax tool tells citizens quickly if they’re entitled to a discount, reduction or exemption

Yours Sincerely,

Jonny Miller
Managing Director, Clackmannanshire Citizens Advice Bureau
