Where else to get support

There are lots of organisations that offer free, confidential advice to help you get back on track, including the Money Advice Service and Citizens Advice. You can also get advice tailored to your situation from the StepChange Debt Charity using their free online tool. You don’t have to enter your name and it only takes about 20 minutes. Be wary of using any companies that charge fees for help. If you do, it may take you longer to pay off your debts. 

Things to think about

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 also provide:

- salary slips
- evidence of tax credits or benefits
- utility bills
- mortgage statements/ rent details
- evidence of other household expenditure
- copies of any credit agreements you have
- bank statements
- more details about each of your debts
