21st-27th March 2022 marks the national debt awareness week; let's talk about it!
Debt is a scary thing sometimes, and nobody ever has the intention of falling into debt and we can often sink our heads into the sand and pretend everything is okay…😕 But through this community we always strive to help one another and make sure we are there for each other.🌍
Debt can seem like the big scary monster and as soon as we tackle it the sooner we can get things back on track and looking positive again and there is absolutely nothing to be ashamed of.
We believe that our community is something special and you all need to know where to go, these are not just energy debt charities but will help you out in your everyday life with all of those everyday expenses. With that here are some sources that can help you out massively:
Step Change -https://www.stepchange.org/.
- Step change offers independent specialist debt advice and will help to identify the routes that will be best needed for your personal experiences. With Step Change, you will complete an income and expenditure form; this is where you will go through all your financial commitments with them that will determine what and where your money needs to go.
