Debt and welfare

Money management & welfare benefits

If you’re struggling with debt, we understand the particular impact this can have on solicitors.

 

If you’re experiencing debt problems, it’s never too early to ask for help. The stress and pressure of owing money can feel overwhelming, especially for solicitors, but there are things we can do to tackle the anxiety. Get in touch for more information on support and advice. In certain cases, for instance when your home is at risk, we can make a one-off, outright grant to clear what is owed. We will require you to take up and act on formal debt advice if we help you in this way.

Confidential advice on money management & debt.

 

If you need help and advice, we can refer you – in strict confidence – to independent FCA registered advisers who understand the consequences of debt for solicitors. Our trusted partners are Citizens Advice Manchester (CAM) and Advice Works – both have strong track records in helping our clients take control of their personal money worries to bring things back to an even keel.
