Charities that provide Debt Advice
Charities that provide Debt Advice It’s that time of year again when everything is getting expensive. What with Christmas and of course energy prices are yet again increasing. And because of this, sometimes people start finding things harder when paying their bills. So I thought it helpful, if I posted some contact details to call for some advice and a guiding light. Citizens Advice This great charity offers face-to- face debt advice via a network of national offices. Some even offer a drop-in service with follow-up sessions that can also be arranged. You can find your local Citizens Advice branch by entering your postcode via: www.citizensadvice.org.uk or if you are living in Scotland via: www. cas.org.uk.
