Help with money
Free, confidential advice and support is available to Albyn tenants facing challenges with debt, budgeting and fuel bills. These services can be provided in your home, an Albyn office or at the advice provider’s premises.
- manage debts
- budget effectively
- decide what type of financial products are right for you (and avoid some of the pitfalls!)

Tenants affected by benefit changes or other financial challenges which are making current housing less suitable can also access help finding alternative suitable accommodation.
The Highland Council has also produced a helpful guide to benefits, money advice, energy advice and other support.
