Increased cost of living and falling incomes means that it is becoming increasingly difficult for families to meet their debt repayments alongside living costs. If this is you, then you are certainly not alone! You may have been managing your debts, but have had to reduce your hours or change your job due to caring responsibilities. It can be very overwhelming, but there are solutions and once those are in place it can reduce worry significantly.
We recommend the following reputable organisations to seek out advice and support.

If you are not able to get the support you need through these organisations you may be able to get help through our Citizens Advice Crisis Worker (you will need to be registered with Carers Support Merton). Please call the office on 020 8646 7515 to request a referral.
