Who can help?
If you find yourself struggling financially, remember you are not alone. There are many free or inexpensive organisations that can help – and which have experience negotiating with credit providers. Plenty of other people have faced challenging financial situations, and by taking steps to better manage their money and credit, they have improved their position. You can too.
Sometimes it is better to acknowledge you need help, than to struggle for years.
