Who are the Money Talk Team?

Who are the Money Talk Team?

We all know that being a parent can cost a lot of money. If you’re struggling to make your money last to the end of the week/month or are worried about how you’ll pay your bills, you’re definitely not alone!

That’s why the Citizens Advice Network in Scotland are offering families the opportunity to get a little help from the Money Talk Team. It’s nothing scary, just a little chat with their friendly advisers to see what you might be entitled to, and advice to help you make the most of your money. They’ll check whether you’re getting as much income as you possibly could, and help find ways that you could pay out less each month, like:

  • Ways you might be able to save cash.
  • Cheaper deals on things like gas and electricity.
  • Claiming benefits you might not know you’re entitled to.
  • Grants or exemptions you may be entitled to.

If you have any money worries, or if you are in debt and you want some advice, the Money Talk Team will be able to chat through your options and help you find the best way forward.

The Money Talk Team is funded by the Scottish Government.

Who can call the Money Talk Team?

Anyone. If you have kids aged between 0-16 years old, why not give them a call? You can talk to the team on the phone or set up a meeting to pop in to your local Citizens Advice Bureau for a chat.

There are lots of different grants, benefits and exemptions for parents across Scotland and we want to make sure you are making the most of them. So, no matter whether you have a small or large family, a new family, a single parent family, or are a parent of a child with disabilities – there could be something to help you.
