Debt advice and counselling

Take control of your finances early to prevent problems further down the line. Do not wait until you are in financial trouble. It is always a good idea to keep track of your money.

Being on top of your finances allows you to cope with changing circumstances or nasty surprises, to borrow wisely or to plan for retirement.

Dealing with a debt problem

If you are worried about debt or money problems, the most important thing is to:

  • take action sooner rather than later - do not ignore calls or letters
  • talk to creditors
  • get advice.
