Debt Advice

Debt Advice Free, confidential and impartial help with debt or money related matters

LHFC DEBT ADVICE has been in place for 5 years and may be the best kept secret we have! With several cases being dealt with, but also the knowledge that there are many more people who need to be helped, now, under the guidance of Emma Boorn, the team is expanding and are getting ready to see lives set free from the burden of debt.

The existing trained team - Emma, Ruth Pankhurst, Graham Woodyet, and Rachel Munn (with thanks to David Eves who has now stepped down) have been joined by Angie Pond, Tracey Wilkinson, Rosemary Goodall, Jan Snow, John Meads and Fran Hill, who have recently completed the two day training to enable them to begin to be Advisers.

The Debt Advice Team is available to anyone who needs help. The service is:

FREE - there is no charge for anything we do.
AVAILABLE - to all who may benefit regardless of age, ethnic background, beliefs or sexual orientation.
CONFIDENTIAL - none of your details will be made available to anyone outside the Service or to any agency unless you give us your permission.
NON-JUDGEMENTAL - we will not pass judgment on the reasons you got into debt. Our purpose is to stand with you and help you cope with the situation and for you to eventually take over responsibility yourself.
COMPETENT - the advisers have been trained to deal quickly and efficiently with debt, creditors and budgeting.
RESPECTFUL -of your right to make your own decisions.

Do get in touch if you need help or pass on this information to people you know who could do with someone to listen, understand and walk with them through the challenges of debt.

The trained and supervised team of volunteers will do all they can to help and can also help with personal and household budgeting, working with you to find a way forward.


The Way In

Most people who face debt problems have not got there because they have an extravagant lifestyle. They are there because of a change in circumstances: redundancy, relationship breakdown, illness or because they have been living for a long time on a very low income.

The Way It Is

Being in debt can turn your life upside down. It is difficult to cope emotionally and practically. The pressure increases when a court summons arrives, goods are repossessed or the people you owe money to start phoning or visiting you at home. Debt is a stigma. It can lead to shame, guilt loneliness and a feeling of constant stress.

The Way Out

Don't despair. You have legal rights and there are actions you can take. Don't hide from the situation by pretending it isn't happening. Take action. If you do nothing the situation is likely to get worse. Please contact us at LHFC Debt Advice to see if we can help you (see contact details below).
