A new website providing information on the wide range of advice and financial support available to people in Scotland has been launched.
Developed by the Scottish Government as a ‘one stop shop’ to help those struggling with the cost-of-living crisis, the website includes information on help available for households to meet rising energy, housing and other costs.
It also provides details on accessing Scottish and UK social security payments, including online benefit calculators, as well as wider health and wellbeing information, and can be accessed here.
A Programme for Government 2022-23 commitment, it will be supported by a nationwide media campaign to raise awareness of the website and signpost people impacted by rising costs to the help available.
Young Scot also has a webpage with information on new offers, tips on saving money, benefits and links to support, which can be accessed here.
