Govan Community Advice Project

Govan Community Advice Project

Govan Housing Association, working in partnership with Govan Help are delighted to announce that we have been successful in obtaining grant funding from Advice UK for the provision of a Money Advice service for the entire Govan Community. The funding is initially until 31 March 2024 with the hope of it being extended until March 2025.

The funding will allow the Association, in partnership with Govan Help to employ one full time and one part time Money Adviser to strengthen our well established Money Advice Service and help to provide further support during the current cost of living crisis.  We are hoping for new staff members to be in place by the end of August.

This exciting project will allow the service to reach more residents and strengthen the Association’s community partnership with Govan Help and allow us to work together to tackle poverty and depravation in the area.

Viv Sawers, Chief Officer at Govan Help says:

Govan HELP is delighted to be working in partnership with Govan Housing Association to host a new Money Advisor to work alongside our team supporting families to resolve financial challenges.  Having this kind of resource to support families is invaluable in ensuring we can provide a holistic package of support to families in Govan.  Often, not having this kind of support available is a real barrier to families and this resource will ensure that families are able to access support when they need it in their own community.
