Do you know what debt means?

Are you having money difficulties?

Did you know that a credit card bill or overdraft is also called debt?

Do you owe anyone money?

At Deaf Action we are always looking for new opportunities and ways to help support deaf* people. Thanks to the Scottish Legal Aid Board, we are now able to offer help and advice when it comes to money and debt management.  Challenges such as the current economic climate and welfare reforms may mean that more people are getting into debt and experiencing financial difficulties.

Our Money Matters Service has a dedicated Money Adviser, Kaz Langlands, who will provide help for people right across Scotland.

The project will:

  • Provide a face-to-face debt advice & information service for deaf people and their families in Edinburgh & Lothian, as well as support with welfare benefits
  • Provide a webcam advice service to deaf people and their families across Scotland in BSL to break down communication barriers
  • Improve the accessibility of mainstream advice & information services across Scotland by publishing and disseminating good practice guidelines
  • Produce & publish information in BSL online
