Help with Debt
Being in debt can be stressful and it can be difficult to know what to do first. We can help you find a way to deal with your debt that suits your own situation. The first step is to complete a Financial Review and then bring it into us.
If you are troubled by contact from your creditors, subject to certain conditions, we can put you into a “breathing space” (Debt Respite Scheme) overseen by the Insolvency Service. This will give you legal protection from creditor action for up to 60 days. The protections include pausing most enforcement action and contact from creditors and freezing most interest and charges on your debts. This gives you time to sort out what is the best debt solution for you.
If you are thinking of applying for a Debt Relief Order (DRO) we can help you with that too.
Universal Credit - Help to Claim
Our Help to Claim service can support you in the early stages of your Universal Credit claim, from the application, through to your first payment.
Help to Claim is a dedicated service from Citizens Advice. It’s free, independent and confidential. Our trained advisers can help with things like how to gather evidence for your application or how to prepare for your work coach appointment.
