VOCAL is delighted to offer debt surgeries for carers from January 2018, in partnership with the Salvation Army Debt Advice Service.
This is a free, confidential and impartial service provided by trained debt advisors that work with clients to help avoid debt or with those with debt and their creditors to agree a manageable and realistic debt management plan.
What can the debt advisors help with?
The service aims to support carers with any or all of the following:
- Debt in the carers name
- Debt in the cared for person’s name (only if the cared for person is willing to attend the appointment with them)
- Credit card debt
- Rent or mortgage arrears
- Store card debt
- Bank loans
- Payday loan companies
How to get support
The debt surgeries are open to all unpaid carers living in Edinburgh and Midlothian.
