It can be difficult to save money, especially during the winter months when you might have to use more heating. The cost of Christmas can soon add up too. Unexpected bills can be difficult at any time of the year and can lead to a lot of worry and possibly debt.
There are many organisations in Shetland that are available to provide support and advice on a wide range of issues. The Ways to Save booklet contains contact information for local groups (on pages 11 to 15) who can provide support and advice on a range of issues, including:
- Managing your money better
- Benefits and gaining employment
- Grants that may be available to you
There are lots of tips in the booklet which could help you lower your bills too. Sometimes just making some small changes can result in savings over the course of the year. We hope you’ll find the Ways to Save booklet useful.
