Dealing with money issues can sometimes be stressful. If you are struggling to keep on top of your finances, the sooner you act and seek help, the easier it will be to get back on the road to financial security. Understanding how things like credit or mortgages work can stop you from losing out financially and help you gain control of your finances.
Debt support services
If you’re in financial difficulty, we recommend contacting a financial counsellor.
Financial counsellors offer free, independent and confidential services to help you get back on track and discuss your options for dealing with unmanageable debt.
Untrustworthy debt advisors
If you’re facing personal financial problems, it’s important to know where to go for help that you can trust. That means speaking to an independent advisor who can give you options, and help you make the right decisions for your situation.
In your search for debt and bankruptcy help or information about debt consolidation, you may come across unregulated, unlicensed advisers. Some advisors provide untrustworthy advice, purposely targeting vulnerable people in times of financial crisis and pressure.
