Citizen's Advice Bureau

The 'Money Talks' team is a Scottish Government sponsored scheme specifically introduced to help families and older people at or approaching retirement age or any other low income household. This is a very positive programme which will have a major contribution to the reduction in Child Poverty.

The team can offer a free, complete and confidential financial health check to make sure a family has all the support needed and where there is some worry about debt to get access to specialist help. The check can also identify if the family is paying too much for services like gas and electricity. 

We can access other specialist services about money, work, benefits or indeed any other issue that a family might need a bit of advice about.

Parents can get in touch by:

Calling our advice line - 01506 432977 (9am to 5pm Monday to Friday) and ask for a call back from Money Talks.

Information from Parent Club

Parent Club has developed a Return of School and Early Learning and Childcare (ELC) Campaign to help parents to feel supported to abide by all current restrictions (both themselves and their children) throughout the phased return to schools and ELC settings. By following the rules, parents and children can help keep schools and nurseries open, and will help to open the school gates for more pupils.

 

 

In addition to signage already in place in primary school and ELC settings, this campaign is now live on digital and social channels, and will continue until Wednesday, 24th March. We will also have coverage of key campaign messages via the Bauer Radio Life Matters platforms for this week and the w/c 15th March. Parents and experts will be sharing their experiences on the return to schools and nurseries and how they are sticking to the restrictions to help reduce community transmission to help keep schools and nurseries open.

Campaign Key Messages

  • Adults wear face coverings at drop off/pick up
  • Stick to one adult at pick up/drop off
  • Adults keep 2 metres apart
  • Avoid car sharing
  • Self-isolate if anyone in your household has symptoms
