Airdrie Citizens Advice Bureau

Tech Your Finance

We are Airdrie Citizens Advice Bureau (CAB). We have looked after and empowered people to change in Airdrie and the surrounding area since November 1971. We provide accredited, independent, free and confidential advice on issues people face in their daily lives: everything from financial management, debt and accessing welfare rights, to employment rights and addressing housing issues.

We are delighted to have secured support for our Tech Your Finance project, which will help people to harness digital skills to better manage their money. We want to address the disadvantage experienced by those who are not digitally skilled and financially aware and so miss out on the best deals and advice.

We'll provide specialist advice to vulnerable individuals to learn how using computers, tablets and mobile phones can help manage money worries through online services, as well as building money, debt and digital skills. This results in empowered, confident and connected communities with improved financial circumstances and wellbeing. Participants will be better able to budget, manage debt, make savings and to protect themselves from fraud and scams.
