Life changes

Take the test

A significant change in your situation is one of the most common causes of financial problems.

Often life changes happen quickly and through no fault of your own. Whether you’ve lost your job, are suffering from ill health or you’ve separated from your partner, changes like this can mean that you struggle to pay your household bills and debts. If this happens it's important to get debt advice as soon as possible.

Having to adjust to such a financial change can be difficult, even if it’s only going to be for the short term.

This section will provide you with help and practical advice to help improve your situation based on the most common types of life changes we come across.

As the nation's leading debt charity we've been giving free, impartial and tailored debt advice for almost 20 years. If you’ve got a specific question that you can’t find an answer to, please contact us and one of our expert advisors will be able to help you.

Helping you become debt free...

"I wish to thank your staff for all the great help they gave me when I was in so much debt. They were a pillar of support to me." (Leslie, Essex)
