Debt Counselling

Employee Counselling Service has formed a partnership with Scottish Debtline which is the Scottish branch of Consumer Credit Counselling Service (a registered charity).

 

The two ways of contacting the service are through the helpline 0800 138 1111 or via the website www.scottishdebtline.co.uk .  

 

The helpline will get you through to a support adviser who can give immediate advice and support and if necessary make an appointment to meet with a debt counsellor.

 

The website is however a good first step (for those who have this facility).  Not only does it have answers to ?frequently asked questions? but it has an option where you can begin the process of organising your financial information.  If you click on the section headed "Debt Remedy" you can then start using this process and be given a reference number which will allow you to move in and out of the site while entering the necessary information.  When you have finished you can print out a personalised information pack analysing your situation and making recommendations.  This is completely anonymous.

 

Should you want to discuss your situation with someone you can then ring the helpline and give your reference number and this allows the adviser to access the information you have collated and give you the best advice much more quickly. 

 

Should you need to establish a debt management plan they can arrange for you to meet a counsellor to organise this.

 

The service is totally free.
