We can only give advice and offer debt solutions to clients living in the UK in England, Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland or clients from the UK living abroad on a short-term basis.

If you’re living abroad on a short term basis you must fit all of the following criteria for us to be able to advise you:

  • You’ve lived in the UK in the last 3 years
  • Your debts were incurred in the UK
  • You access your money from a UK bank account and/or you are returning to the UK within the next 12 months

If your situation fits all of these criteria then please call us on 0044 113 297 0126.

If you're hearing or speech impaired you can contact us using the Next Generation Text Service (NGTS). This replaces the older Type Talk service and lets you communicate using your computer, smartphone app or through a telephone relay assistant.

To find out more about how to use the service please visit the NGTS website.

If you’re self-employed, living in England, Wales or Scotland, and looking for help with your debts, please contact Business Debtline for free, specialised advice.
