Money Advice & Debt
We have here in Epsom & Ewell a strong and established money advice and debt advisory capacity within our general advice team.
All our advisors who give debt advice have passed special accredited training run by the Money Advice Service, and we are overseen in our debt advice by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). Our FCA number is at the bottom of the page.
Debt advice is a skilled activity, and we are proud that so many of our volunteer team have undertaken the lengthy training required for this, in order to be able to help people in the Borough.
Life often throws financial challenges in our path, which may start small, such as a bill to pay being larger than expected, or large, such as a benefit payment being reduced, but either way, these can send us onto the growing spiral of debt.
Clients often tell us that they didn’t know who to turn to or where to start. If you are in debt, and feel out of control or overwhelmed, please contact us for help – the longer it is left untackled, the larger the problem can become.
Just call or drop-in to the office (see How To Get Advice) and one of our skilled and trained advisors will be able to help you.
Remember that all our work is free and completely confidential.
Specialist Debt Project
In recent years we have seen a significant increase in the number of clients seeking advice on complex income and debt problems.
In response to this we have established a specialist money advice & debt project, with two specialist advisors who work with certain clients on a one to one basis to help them sort out their money and debt problems, and to help them onto a path where they can better manage their money in future and avoid out-of-control debt.
The project is by referral only, as it can only take the most complex of cases, which means that clients are seen first by the general service and referred in if appropriate.
We are grateful to our funders for their support in providing this service:
