What do we do?
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 advice and support.
We help people claim the benefits they are entitled to and access the financial services they need. We provide training and support to help people take control of their own finances by helping them to manage their household budgets, access financial services online and to shop around for the best energy deals available to them.
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.
Money Skills Argyll is a three year, £3.75 million project which is joint funded by European Structural Funds and the National Lottery Community Fund Scotland. It will focus on achieving an increase in disadvantaged participants with improved money management skills; and a decrease in disadvantaged participants affected by debt as a barrier to social inclusion.
