Money Skills Argyll

Money Skills Argyll Project is about helping people who live across Argyll and Bute, aged 16 and over, living in a jobless household, living in a single adult household with dependent children, or low income employed. We will help you to be more in control of your money with help, advice and support with Debt Advice, Money Advice, Computer Skills, Money Management, Income Maximisation and Affordable Warmth / Fuel Poverty.

We help people claim the benefits they are entitled to and to access the financial services they need to run their lives. We provide training and support to help people take control of their own futures by helping them to manage their household budgets, access financial services online and to shop around for the best energy deals available to them.

We provide debt advice to help people manage their finances and keep their spending habits on track. Most of all, we help and encourage people to remove the barriers and obstacles which debt and money worries have put in the way of them living active lives and participating in their local communities.
