Avoiding calls from numbers you don’t know? Not opening letters in case they’re demands for money or threats of legal action? Unsure how you’re going to afford your repayments this month? If you answered yes to one or all of these questions, it’s time to get help with your debts. 

We speak to so many people every day who have reached a point where they need help managing their debts. Many have been worrying for some time about how they’re going to afford their bills or even how they’re going to buy food for themselves and their family. 

If this is you, we’re here to reassure you that there is help out there and that no matter how much you’re struggling with your repayments currently – or how much you owe – there is a way to deal with problem debt. 

You can get the help you need today

No matter how bad things have become, you can start to get in control of your debts today. You can start unravelling all those complicated debts problems simply by having a conversation with someone who wants to help. 

It can be very hard not to worry constantly about debts, especially if you’re being chased for payments by creditors. But the important thing to remember is that there is a way to put a stop to all that worry and start rebuilding your finances – and you don’t have to wait to get this help. 

The people with the expertise and time to help you work everything out are only a phone call away. Our advisors are trained to be able to advise people in a range of different situations and they will always recommend the best solution for your particular set of circumstances. 

What if my creditors are chasing me?

You should never think you won’t be allowed to start a plan to lower your repayments because your creditors are chasing you for money. In fact, if you can’t pay what they’re asking for, it’s definitely the right time to look at more sustainable ways to manage your debts. 

Some people put off ringing us for help because they feel they should try and cope by themselves. But anyone can find themselves in problem debt and getting help and advice is the best thing you can do for your future – you don’t have to wait until things get any worse. 

Even if you’ve missed payments, or you already have defaults or CCJs (Country Court Judgements), you can still get help with your debts. It’s never too late.
