Debt Consultancy Service C.I.C is a Community Interest Company who provide free advice on debt, debt solutions and money management. We focus on three areas to help improve our community
Studies from The Money Advice Service show that that over 8 million people in the UK are over-indebted and of these only 17% seek advice. Debt Consultancy Service C.I.C aims to make advice more accessible, more user friendly and more engaging. In doing this, we hope to reach some of the 6.6 million in the UK who do not currently feel able to seek advice on their debts and finances. We will not just be providing a quick fix debt and money advice but will also be providing the tools to try to improve financial awareness, confidence and sustainability
The team at Debt Consultancy Service C.I.C are passionate about reducing financial hardship, we are continuously working on developing helpful leaflets and guides assisting as many people in financial hardship as possible. Currently on the phones alone we advise over 70 people in financial difficulty on a weekly basis.
Debt Consultancy Service C.I.C create and deliver training sessions to organisations, individuals and schools, helping to eradicate financial hardship from lack of knowledge or understanding.
In addition, Debt Consultancy Service C.I.C invest money into local sport programs, assisting children from families in debt or poverty to have the chance to join sport clubs and have the sports equipment that ordinarily would be unaffordable to them. Studies have shown a clear link between parents in financial difficulty and childhood mental illness, we hope encouraging them to attend sports clubs and providing them with the tools they need could help.
