From Monday 4th February people looking for free debt advice in North Lanarkshire have more options.

The five Citizens Advice Bureaux in North Lanarkshire (Airdrie, Bellshill, Coatbridge, Cumbernauld, Motherwell and Wishaw)  have joined together to launch a new Money Advice service, making it easier for people to access free, confidential debt advice online, by phone or in person. This new service will enable people who are concerned about managing their money or financial commitments to access debt advice in a way that suits them, and easily transfer from one form of support to another as they need. 

The Freephone helpline 0800 328 1131, open 9 am to 5 pm, Monday to Friday, is staffed by trained advisers who will do what they can to help callers over the phone. Appointments can be made in any of the five participating bureaux if these are necessary. The bureau websites also link to a range of self-help options for people looking for information.
