What if I am struggling with more than one debt?
Your rent should be your number one priority because if you don’t pay it you run the risk of losing your home. It is also important to pay your utility bills (such as your gas and electricity bills) and council tax before you pay any other bills (such as catalogue and credit card bills).
If you are thinking of borrowing a lump sum to pay off your arrears and other debts, get advice first.
If you would like advice and support please contact us. We can refer you to the local Citizen’s Advice Bureau via our direct referral scheme, or if you prefer you can contact them directly on 01452 527202 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
The Citizen’s Advice Bureau offer free, confidential, independent advice and can often help you find a solution to your money problems and to negotiate reduced payments with those you owe money to.
You could also contact The National Debt Line who offer free, confidential, independent advice on 0808 808 4000 or visit www.nationaldebtline.co.uk
