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.
See our website for more info on:
- debt problems - can't pay your car loan? Phone bill? Credit card? Another debt?
- debt solutions - read about ways to tackle your debts one step at a time
- complex situations - natural disasters, family violence and economic abuse
You might feel overwhelmed, but you have options and there are steps you can take yourself. But if you feel you need a bit more guidance or need help quickly, simply call us.
