Dealing with difficult times

Sometimes we have to deal with unexpected and difficult situations, such as serious illness, unemployment, relationship breakdowns or dealing with the death of a loved one. It can be challenging managing finances at the best of times, but it becomes harder when you or a loved one experiences a major life event that leaves you vulnerable.

Mental Health

We can sometimes experience problems which make day-to-day life more difficult, and this may be related to mental health issues or losing mental capacity. When you are coping with any kind of mental health problem, being in debt can make you feel worse, so it’s important that you get as much support as possible. If you’re facing difficulties paying your mortgage, please don’t wait until it’s too late - call us and we will work with you to sort things out, including putting practical arrangements in place that will prevent matters getting worse.

If you need somebody to speak to us on your behalf

If you are finding it difficult to manage your finances and speak to your creditors, you may want to ask a trusted relative or friend to do so on your behalf. They can call us on 0800 612 9982 and we can start the process that will enable them to speak to us on your behalf.

If you feel that you have nobody to turn to, you could consider asking a Debt Charity such as Stepchange (0800 138 1111) or Citizens Advice Bureau on 03444 111 444 (England), 03444 77 20 20 (Wales) to act for you.
