We are delighted to announce that we have just secured a £35,000 grant from the Scottish Government Debt Advice Levy Fund to strengthen our specialist services that help families and individuals deal practically with financial pressure and establish a healthy financial foundation.
This boost in funding, sits in line with our long-term strategy to raise our profile across the North East with the aim of supporting as many local people as possible who are struggling with their finances.
Our new funds will go towards developing a number of initiatives from enhancing our online presence to opening up new hiring opportunities for paid staff positions. We are also working on rolling out a new e-learning programme to support anyone who wants to improve their financial wellbeing.
Ditch Debt with Dignity Founder, Wendy Fleming said:
“We are delighted to have secured significant funding to continue with our mission to provide confidential and professional advice to those who are privately struggling with their finances.
This is an extremely welcome boost that will allow us to further develop our online resources to get the word out there to anyone battling with debt that they are not alone and there is free guidance available.”
