Money Map Tool

23rd November 2020

Today is the launch of Citizen’s Advice Scotland’s new online Money Map tool, designed to help people who are struggling with their finances.

New research for Citizens Advice Scotland has revealed that almost half of people in Scotland have run out of money before payday since Covid-19 restrictions began. This shows how important it is that we make sure that we are receiving all financial entitlements and maximising our income as much as possible. That’s why the Money Map tool has been created.

  • Housing
  • Benefits
  • Grants
  • Energy bills
