Tech your Finance

Tech your Finance

Airdrie Citizens Advice Bureau has launched a new digital financial capability project - Tech your finance.   Funded from October 2018 until March 2020 by the RBS Skills and Opportunity Fund, our project aims are to offer specialist digital money advice and support to help harness digital skills.  

Our objective is to address the disadvantages experienced by those who are not digitally skilled and financially aware and to better manage their finances. We want to empower individuals and communities to prepare for future building of financial capabilities and resilience to unexpected financial circumstances.

We will provide specialist advice on learning how using computers, tablets and mobile phones can help manage money worries through online services, as well as building money, debt and digital skills.

Our aim is to empower and build confidence and connect communities with improved financial circumstances and wellbeing with participants being better able to budget, manage debt, switching and savings, income maximisation, affordable credit, Insurance and to protect themselves from fraud and scams.

The project will be delivered via face to face appointments, digital workshops and sessions. We will also be available with an outreach service in Airdrie Library every 2nd week Monday morning (09.30 – 12.30) and Tuesday afternoon (13.00 – 15.30).

 If you would like more information or you would like to arrange an appointment with a digital money adviser or book a group workshop – contact Airdrie Citizen advice Bureau on 01236 754109 or email us at bureau@airdriecab.casonline.org.uk
