Our services and communications

It is up to you how you get help from us:

  • You can get advice without having to speak to anyone. Use our online debt advice tool at any time that suits you
  • If you prefer to speak to someone, call our friendly teams

We can keep in touch with you by email, SMS or by post. Just let us know what you prefer when you have your debt advice session.

We know dealing with debt is hard. And if you have additional physical, mental or emotional needs, these can make debt even more of a worry. Find out how we can adjust our service to support you.

Can you speak to someone on my behalf?

We will usually need you to sign a 'letter of authority' which shows you have allowed us to do this. There may be times when we do not need you to do this. We will explain how it works when you speak to us.
