Money worries

Most families have money worries of one sort or another, and the effects of coronavirus have piled on the pressure.

We're here if you want to talk about money worries

We know how hard some families are finding it to make ends meet –especially for parents and carers who are struggling with debt, caring for others or with uncertainties about work or welfare benefits. You don’t have to worry alone – talking to someone you can trust can start to make you feel more in control.

Children 1st Money Advisors have years of experience talking to parents and carers about how money worries affect all of us and what we can do to feel better. They can help you plan so you are more in control. They have lots of advice and ideas about the help available to deal with debt.

Our money advisors can now support parents and carers across Scotland who have money worries that are affecting family life. You can arrange to speak with a money advisor by contacting Children 1st Parentline.

Through Children 1st Parentline, you can arrange to speak with a money advisor, who will:

  • Listen carefully to your story and individual circumstances, so we know how we can help.
