The cost of living crisis is being felt across most households, with people facing worries over things like rent, bills, energy costs, debt and more.
As part of its response to the situation, the Scottish Government has launched a new website, gov.scot/costoflivingsupport, to help you access the support you need.
From help with energy bills and childcare to health and travel, as well as benefits and payments, the new website acts as an important signpost to them all.
There’s also dedicated information for families, older people and disabled people, who can be particularly impacted by rising costs.
Help and advice is available
Energy costs are a concern for everyone at the moment, but support is available to help with bills as well as funding for improvements, including insulation, to keep your home warmer. The Scottish Government funded Home Energy Scotland service is on hand to provide free and impartial advice online and by phone on 0808 808 2282.
Many people are struggling to manage their debt and money. The Money Talk Team is funded by the Scottish Government, and provides advice online, by phone on 0800 028 1456, or in person at your local Citizens Advice Bureau.
No matter your circumstances, everyone is encouraged to seek the financial support they are entitled to.
