    It is too late to book a place for this particular session, sorry about that.

    This Money Guiders Scotland network event in Kirkcaldy will provide insights into the approaches taken and methods used by three local organistations.

    Topics covered will include income:

    • maximization;
    • welfare and benefits;
    • energy and debt advice;
    • financial inclusion;
    • affordable credit and budgeting for households.

    Citizens Advice & Rights Fife (CARF) will talk about how money advice is delivered, with a focus on a tailored approach that has been developed using the Fife Benefit Checker and the Our Fife toolkit, aimed at income maximisation and support with the cost of living for its clients. Cosy Kingdom will talk about their impartial energy and debt advice service available to tenants and homeowners and their partnership with CARF.

    Kingdom Community Bank will talk about the five credit unions across Fife promoting financial inclusion and the role of one, Kingdom Community Bank, in providing affordable credit, plus details of their new household financial management and budgeting project. You'll have opportunities to meet the speakers, network with other participants and join us afterwards for lunch.
