Funding

Debt Support Trust was established to provide debt advice for people requiring debt help. The charity is predominantely supported by volunteers, however our employed team ensure our charity advice is accurate and meets the highest standards for debt advice.

In order for Debt Support Trust to operate we require support and funding from external people and organisations. Debt Support Trust receives funding in the form of donations and grants to provide our money advice service. This funding is provided by organisations and people wishing to support the values and service offered by Debt Support Trust. Donations come from various sources including accountancy firms, debt collection companies, insolvency agencies and people we've helped out of debt and wish to contribute (although this is not a necessary for service users to pay us money). We are always grateful for new donations to help support our debt advice charity.

Volunteering

Debt Support Trust relies on volunteers who have a caring and understanding nature. Joining Debt Support Trust will make you part of a very enthusiastic team. You will make new friends, learn new skills and it's a rewarding experience being part of a team helping people during their time of need.

At Debt Support Trust we would like to welcome new volunteers who would like to join our team. We believe the wider the diversity the better and we also believe that people from all walks of life are able to put something back into the community.

What Would I Need To Do?

You will receive ongoing training within Debt Support Trust so don't worry if you don't have any experience. There is always a friendly face to help with whatever questions you may have. Most of our volunteers help with the day to day operation within Debt Support Trust, from being the first point of contact for somebody in need of help through to paperwork. However the charity has lots of volunteer positions depending on your skills, for instance, our graphics designer Chris provides support during his spare time to help design leaflets and posters.
