Explore how Scottish independence could affect your home, work and family.
It’s easy to get lost in all the arguments and statistics around the Scottish independence referendum debate. That’s why we’ve made the debate easier with a new website: You Decide 2014
The site is run by the UK government.
We want to see Scotland remain part of the UK because we believe this is in everyone’s best interests.
Scottish independence would affect each of us differently – parents, students, business owners.
Use the YouDecide online tool to find out more about the benefits of being part of the UK.
For instance, did you know that staying in the UK could save you up to £1,700 on mortgage repayments in the first year alone – and will save up to £189 a year on an average household energy bill?
The referendum on 18 September 2014 is the most important decision to face Scottish people in 300 years.
You have a right to know what it will mean for you.
If you’re still unclear on something, then please ask us a question and we’ll do our best to answer it.
