BLAENAU Gwent AM Alun Davies is encouraging people in Gwent to use a new Welsh Government website which helps people find information about how they can make their money go further.
The website, www.moneymadeclearwales.org, was created by the Wales Cooperative Centre and gives information about a range of services to help people manage their money.
As well as giving details of financial help and guidance available across Wales, the website includes information about affordable credit and savings, news about campaigns and topical stories.
The AM said: “Some members of our communities need all the financial assistance they can get at the moment. This website will help signpost sources of financial advice and also give details of local credit unions, who are ideally placed in communities and offer an affordable alternative to other loan providers.
“Loan sharks feel no guilt about their immoral dealings even when it can lead to a life of financial ruin for some families.
“While it may be tempting to take that extra money in the short term the consequences can be dreadful. If you are struggling for financial help then Credit Unions offer a safe and easy place to turn to.”
