That the Parliament congratulates Citizens Advice Scotland on developing an online financial support tool, Money Map, which offers useful sources for people to maximise income and minimise costs across issues such as benefits, grants, council tax, housing and food; notes that it brings a wide range of sources of help into one place, making it easier for people in financial need to find support that they can easily access and activate; acknowledges that it offers options for people in immediate need of financial assistance as well as those looking to improve their finances in the longer term, and commends the Money Map tool for being a valuable resource in helping people improve their financial wellbeing in these turbulent economic times.
