The East Ayrshire Citizen Advice Bureau have become one of ten organisations within Scotland to be shortlisted for up to £35,000 of project funding from the Royal Bank of Scotland.
£280,000 has been made available across Scotland through RBS’ Skills & Opportunities Fund. Since beginning the Skills & Opportunities Fund in 2015, RBS have given grants of up to £35,000 to non-for-profit organisations to help and support people in some of the most deprived communities within the UK and Ireland.
East Ayrshire Citizen Advice Bureau hope to get funding for their project Making Money Work. If this project goes ahead, it would allow a peripatetic financial capability officer to be employed who would provide one to one advice and help the users of eight local food banks plan and budget. They hope that this will have long-term positive impacts on the area with less people under the poverty line and more people employed.
The East Ayrshire branch of the Citizen Advice Bureau is a non-profit organisation who provides free, confidential and impartial advice on issues like housing, employment and benefits available to local residents.
