We're here to help
We understand that sometimes people struggle financially. Bills can pile up and it’s difficult to make ends meet. It feels scary and you’re tempted to ignore the situation, hoping things will improve.
If you're worried about paying money back, your debt feels like a huge burden because you're spending more than you earn, you're struggling to pay your mortgage/rent/bills or several of your cards are at the maximum credit limit...it's time to ask for help.
Things to consider before calling
It’s worth getting together some information before you call anyone to talk about your situation.
Most organisations will ask about your income, your household expenses, how much you owe and who you owe it to. If you decide to get further support from a debt charity or organisation, you might need to provide:
- Salary slips
- Evidence of tax credits or benefits
- Utility bills
- Evidence of other household expenditure
- Mortgage statements/rent details
- Bank statements
- More details about each of your debts
- Copies of any credit agreements you have
