Welcome to our website
The Independent Resource Centre aims to reduce poverty and address issues underpinning financial exclusion by delivery of its services. We provide advice to everyone, regardless of their circumstances, but specifically aim to assist: those on low incomes; those with unmanageable debts; those out of work; and those who are eligible for benefits.
We provide free advice and support from 9am - 5pm Monday to Thursday and 9am - 15:30pm on Friday at 627 Dumbarton Road, Dalmuir, Clydebank. In addition we provide disability behaviour support and advice, focusing on autism, at our office in 445 Dumbarton Road on Monday and Thursday mornings.
