Lanark and Hamilton East MP Angela Crawley and Hamilton, Larkhall and Stonehouse MSP Christina McKelvie are hosting a cost-of-living support event in Hamilton on Friday 4th November.
A number of organisations including Citizens Advice, Home Energy Scotland, LAMH and Money Matters will be on had to offer practical help and advice for constituents struggling with or worried about the cost-of-living crisis.
The event will take place at the Town House in Hamilton between 12pm and 3pm.
Commenting, Lanark and Hamilton East MP Angela Crawley said:
“As the cost-of-living crisis continues to spiral out of control, we wanted to offer whatever support we could to anyone who is worried or struggling to afford essentials.
“We’ve brought together several organisations who work in Hamilton, Larkhall and surrounding areas under one roof to try and help as many people as we can.
“Anyone who might need support is welcome to come along and I will continue to lobby at Westminster for fairer support to help my constituents through the cost-of-living crisis.”
Hamilton, Larkhall and Stonehouse MSP Christina McKelvie added:
“With so many different types of support from different organisations available to help those struggling due to the cost-of-living-crisis it can be a challenge to know where to turn.
“Having organisations like Citizens Advice and others together gives people the opportunity to hear first-hand what support is on offer directly from those offering support.
“I hope this will be some help to constituents who are looking for support during this challenging time.
“The Scottish Government have also pulled together a resource of cost-of-living help that is available and can be viewed here: https://costofliving.campaign.gov.scot/.”
