Measures to help people impacted by the cost crisis, including rent freeze criteria.


Help and advice

If you are having financial difficulties

The cost of living website helps those struggling with the cost of living crisis. It includes information on help available for households to meet rising energy, housing and other costs.

It also provides details on accessing Scottish and UK social security payments, including online benefit calculators, as well as wider health and wellbeing information.

If you need more help or advice about your situation

The Scottish Government cannot give specific advice for your individual circumstances. If you are unsure about how the measures apply to you, you may find it helpful to seek advice from an independent advice organisation such as Shelter Scotland or Citizens Advice Scotland.
