For all debt management questions contact our debt team for advice and help who offer free, no obligation solutions. A debt management programme is an unofficial way of communicating, between yourself and your creditors, regarding lower payments.
The advantages of debt management are:
You only make one monthly payment and this is split between all your debts.
All contact between creditors and yourself is handled by the debt management company.
You pay an amount that you can realistically afford but if your circumstances change this can be adjusted.
You will not receive any late payment fees because all transactions go through the debt management programme, and they may be able to adjust or stop any interest on your debts.
Ideal for people with with debts of less than £15,000
