Help and Advice
We cannot give you any specific advice in relation to dealing with your debts however, there are a number of organisations that you can get free independent help and advice from. We have set out the contact information for these organisations below.
There are also many companies around who will charge you for advice or help. Whilst these companies may help you understand how much to pay each of your creditors, it will mean less of the money you have available will go on repaying your debts.
The contact details for the organisations that are able to provide free independent help and advice are as follows:
