Support for Fifers facing financial hardship post-lockdown
Fifers have been urged to seek help if they are finding things tough financially after lockdown.
The appeal comes from Fife Council which is working with a number of organisations, including Citizens Advice and Rights Fife (CARF) and Cosy Kingdom.
More and more people are finding things tough financially as a result of Covid-19, and for anyone facing a change to benefits or income, it can be even harder.
Councillor David Alexander, co-leader of Fife Council, said: “There’s no getting away from the fact that Covid-19 has changed all our lives and have left many struggling to cope financially.
“Money is an issue for many people across Fife, not just for those on benefits - we’re also seeing an increase in the number of people who are in in-work poverty.”
Councillor David Ross, co-leader, added: “The most important thing is to know you’re not alone and that help is available.”
