Argyll & Bute Citizens Advice Bureau

Debt is often a problem in rural communities such as Argyll & Bute. The Citizens Advice Bureau in Lochgilphead provides confidential, impartial and independent advice to help clients take control of their finances and make decisions to improve their lives.

Our grant of £19,528 enabled a series of workshops to take place across Argyll & Bute offering advice on financial awareness and managing money. Managed by the Bureau’s Financial Education worker, the workshops targeted the young and the elderly to teach money management skills and helped identify minor debt problems before they were out of control, reducing the level of debt in the region.
