The service is free and confidential and is provided by a trained debt advisor in the comfort of the customer’s home.
All debt problems are solvable, it may not be quick or easy but there is always a solution. The earlier they are dealt with the easier they are to manage.
Debt isn't just a finance issue it impacts on all elements of life so solutions are wide and varied; from cutting interest costs, budgeting, or simply getting free one-on-one debt help.
In addition to debt advice tenants will receive a money MOT to check they are claiming all the benefits they are entitled to. We can also carry out a 'better off in work' calculation to show the impact of moving into work or increasing hours of work.
