THE Fairer Moray Forum is advising residents where they can turn to for financial and emotional support.

A directory has been put together by the forum’s action group, which is Moray’s leading poverty focus group supporting individuals and families struggling with financial hardship.

Food banks are just one of the agencies listed on Fairer Moray Forum's directory.

Moray Council’s Benefit Manager, Norma Matheson, said: “Moray’s support services are always busy but this year they have been working tirelessly in our communities to help with food, financial difficulties and isolation.

“Christmas and the winter months can be an expensive time and some feel even more isolated with their problems. We want to get the message out to let people know that they are not alone and help is available in Moray.”

Organisations listed below can help residents who are worried about money and are struggling to pay rent or bills; have lost their job; have a reduced income; are worried about credit card payments; are choosing between food and fuel.

The directory, as well as other contacts and advice, can be found on Fairer Moray Forum's Facebook page.

The forum can also be contacted by phone on (01343) 208293 or alternatively visit their website at http://www.morayfoodplus.org.uk/
