For carers, it can be hard to make ends meet and this sometimes leads to problems with debt. If you need help with money matters there are various organisations that offer free debt and money advice.
Money worries and debt can leave you feeling overwhelmed so the sooner you seek help the better. Problems can often be resolved if dealt with quickly and not left to spiral. If things are feeling out of control it’s never too late to get help and advice.
You can also get help with general budgeting, charitable grants and help from energy companies if you are struggling to pay your bills.
For immediate telephone or internet debt and money advice you can contact National Debtline here or by calling 0808 808 4000.
If you would like face-to-face advice you can ask to see a debt adviser through your local Citizens Advice Bureau or Independent Advice Centre. You can find more information about how to get advice in Bristol and South Gloucestershire here.
