At the ABCUL Scotland conference today the Scottish Government announced the launch of their new Financial Health Service website. Scottish Minister for Energy, Enterprise and Tourism, Fergus Ewing said: “We must ensure that people who need to access debt and budgeting advice do so easily with credible sources”.
The website is aimed at providing a one stop shop portal which provides links to debt advice services and information on managing money. Recognising the importance of Credit Unions in providing ethical lending, the site also allows people in Scotland to find their local credit union. The site can be found at www.scotlandsfinancialhealthservice.gov.uk
