Debt help and advice is the process of helping people who are experiencing difficulty in meeting their financial commitments.
Drumchapel Citizens Advice Bureau provides a Free, Confidential, Independent and Impartial service.
We aim to ensure that members of the community are given the appropriate level of advice, guidance and support to deal with their debt and with the other issues that often come with it.
Whether the debt is, for example – rent or mortgage; loans or overdrafts; overpayment of benefits; credit cards; credit agreements; council tax or poll tax; gas/electricity; fines and declaring yourself bankrupt – any or all of these, and others not mentioned, we can help.
Q. I have several debts and finding it difficult to maintain payments – what are my options?
Q. I’m behind in my mortgage payments and in danger of losing my home – what do I do?
Q. I need help to work out how much debt I can repay each month – can you help?
If you have a question about debt, Adviceguide is a self-help website from Citizens Advice Bureau. On this site you will find information and advice on a range of topics, fact sheets, ‘how to’ guides, and tips for helping you manage your money. Visit www.adviceguide.org.uk to learn more.
If you can’t find the answer to your debt problem, then you can make an appointment to meet face-to-face with one of our fully trained, volunteer advisers. To allow us to make the best possible assessment of your situation, please bring any of the following documents with you:
- The name and address of everyone you owe money to (recent letters or bills show this)
- How much money you owe to each person or business (recent bills show this)
- Account numbers
- Other letters, from collection agents or solicitors for example
- Court letters, orders or citations
- Insurance policies
- Proof of income (wage slips, benefit details, pensions, maintenance payments, etc.)
