Airdrie & Coatbridge Advertiser
Freedebt advice available
A campaign is under way to encourage Lanarkshire residents to seek free debt advice if they are struggling with their bills.
The Advice Direct Scotland initiative includes adverts on commercial radio, in newspapers, on buses and on digital street hubs.
People 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).
Andrew Bartlett, chief executive of Advice Direct Scotland, said: “This is a timely campaign to help Scots struggling with the burden of debt.
“We know that January is a particularly difficult time for many, and there are widespread concerns about a cost-of-living crisis this year – especially with energy bills set to soar.
“For those worried about their financial commitments, we’re proud to run moneyadvice.scot on top of our extensive consumer advice service.”
