Some people are embarrassed about their situation but recognizing there is a problem and asking for help is a huge step in resolving the problem. A lot of people get into financial difficulties through no fault of their own, due to perhaps bereavement, loss of job or ill health. Our Money Matters Advisers are here to help and treat people with respect and confidentiality. Please contact them if you are struggling to pay your rent, or if you have other debts that might stop you paying your rent in future.
