Why do we exist?
Our mission is to connect advice and information with the people who need it. We believe technology will allow us to address the huge unmet need for help and advice in Scotland.
advice.scot is the online identity of Advice Direct Scotland.
Impartial advice should be available to everyone in Scotland, at no cost, regardless of personal circumstance. No subject matter is inconsequential, unimportant or a waste of time. Pick up the phone, ping off an email, talk to us via webchat or even send us a tweet – we are here for you whenever you need us.
We take more than 700,000 contacts annually, across our organisations, and have now amassed almost 3,000,000 separate cases.
