This week we have launched a new membership programme, making it easier for those working in money advice to get involved with us.

One of the biggest changes to membership is that there are no longer any fees for free sector money advisers to encourage advisers to join and benefit from being part of a network of like-minded individuals. Those working in relevant third sector organisations can also join for free.

The aim of the new membership programme is to strengthen the money advice community and give those working in the sector the opportunity to engage directly with Money Advice Scotland to report concerns, connect with colleagues, and work towards securing fairer practices for people in debt.

Benefits of membership include members only policy forums, tailored and regular members communications, access to bespoke webinars, the ability to shape a new programme of training for the sector, and the opportunity to join the our mentorship scheme.

Peter Costello, Chief Executive at Money Advice Scotland said:

“We are delighted to have launched our new membership programme. Our aim is to continue to build a community of advisers and provide them with resources, tools, and training to help them do their jobs – which are more important than ever in the context of rising living costs and post-Covid recovery.

“We are committing to ongoing consultation with the sector to ensure that our membership is and continues to be useful to advisers.”

As well as launching the new membership scheme, we have also introduced a brand new supporters option, whereby those who don’t work in the money advice sector but are interested in the our work can get involved.
