Early Resolution of Advice Programme


Grant Funding Programme 2012 – 2018


The Economic Downturn programme started on 1 October 2012. Programme priorities were agreed by our funders, the Scottish Government and the Money Advice Service, the organisation which helps people across the UK manage their money better.

This programme was extended in March 2015. The programme was renamed the Early Resolution of Advice Programme in April 2017 and runs to March 2018.
