Councillor Alastair Redman, Policy Lead for Economic Growth and Communities:
“As the cost of living crisis continues, we are hearing first-hand how the Argyll and Bute card is helping households. It is also providing an economic boost to many of our local businesses, who provide vital employment to our communities. I would encourage anyone who has not activated their card, to do so before the deadline.”
