How do you start the conversation when asking for debt help? It's not something most people think about. But, for many, they are the hardest words to say.
At Debt Support Trust, a registered debt advice charity, we encounter lots of different ways by which people say they need help.
Undoubtedly, the first words are the hardest so some people say, "I am in debt and need help". This enables us to explain what we do and how we do it. Other people prefer to quickly explain what's happened and you can almost feel the weight come off their shoulders just by telling someone about their problem.
As soon as somebody informs Debt Support Trust they are in debt and need help we can get to work on finding the appropriate debt solutions for them. We explain the pros and cons of each solution and what the implications would be for things like your job, house and credit history.
