If you’re struggling with debt, Better Leeds Communities can help. Your first step should always be to get free expert debt advice, based on your personal circumstances. No matter what your debt problem, we can support you.
We can offer appointments face to face or on the telephone: Monday to Friday, 10am - 4pm
We also offer the following Debt Drop-in sessions, no appointment required. You can call on:
Thursday between 9am-12 noon
All we ask you to do is have the following information ready so we can help you:
Your income – weekly/monthly pay and/or benefits
Debts you owe – gas, electric, water, catalogue, gym, loan, credit cards, hire purchase, etc.
Users of our Debt Outreach Service, funded by Henry Smith, are identified through the Linking Leeds Social Prescribing Service for Leeds.
This referral-only service supports people struggling with debt who are also battling other issues, including substance misuse, homelessness, mental ill-health, long-term health conditions, and disabilities.
The project is flexible in its approach and takes into account barriers people may have, including transport and childcare costs, which can stop them accessing mainstream support services.
If you need help with budgeting this service is available through our Budgeting Digital Tool.
Our Budgeting Digital Pack is available for you to work through in your own time at your own pace. The pack contains tips, advice and engaging activities. You can access the pack here: Digital budgeting pack
