National Debt Helpline
National Debt Helpline is a not-for-profit service that helps people tackle their debt problems. We’re not a lender and we don’t ‘sell’ anything or make money from you. Our professional financial counsellors offer a free, independent and confidential service.
We’re simply here to help you get back on track.
When you’re in financial trouble your first port of call should be the National Debt Helpline. If you can’t find the answer to your situation on our website, call 1800 007 007. One of our trained financial counsellors will assess your situation and provide you with free advice to help you move on.
If your matter is more complex, they can refer you to your closest face-to-face financial counselling service.
They’ll also put you in touch with the right service you require, such as legal services, crisis food and accommodation services, and health services.
