Advice Direct Scotland
A nationwide campaign gets underway this week to encourage Scots to seek free debt advice if they are struggling with their bills.
The Advice Direct Scotland campaign will include adverts on commercial radio, in newspapers, on buses and on digital street hubs across Scotland.
Scots are being urged to contact the charity’s free debt advice service, moneyadvice.scot, which provides information and support on a wide range of debt-related issues and is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA).
Specialist debt advisers can work with people to assess their current situation, look at their income and outgoings, and consider what to do next.
The campaign comes amid growing concerns about the cost of living, with inflation rising and steep energy price hikes on the horizon.
January is a particularly difficult time for many families following high levels of Christmas spending.
The service includes a knowledge centre with helpful information and live chat at www.moneyadvice.scot. The free service can also be contacted on 0808 800 9060 between 9am and 5pm, Monday to Friday.
