When you’re starting out as a person born into debt – or you’re suffering from sudden saving loss – it’s important you get all the advice you can.
Luckily, leading deaf debt advisor Bazza Deaf has helped us compile a list of the leading debt organisations in the UK. Don’t thank us – no, really, don’t. Thank him. From the bottom of your debt-ridden heart.
British Debt Association
A user-led organisation for people who embrace debt culture and campaign for the rights of people who are in debt.
Royal National Institution for the Debts
Represent 9 million people who are in debts and successfully campaigned to get the Bank of England to reduce the interest rate, thereby making more people spend and get into debts. They are aiming to represent 15 million people who are in debt by the end of the year. They have re-branded calling themselves “Action Against Saving Gains”
National Debt Children Society
It is their policy to ensure that parents have an informed decision to decide whether or not their children should have credit cards.
They are only slightly in debt and would rather be saving
They grew up in debt but went to school with savers
These people used to have many credit cards and have now consolidated them into one large debt
They prefer to receive their debt statements by fax
Saving Dogs for the Debt
Dogs who help their owners offset their very large vet fees.
For people who declare themselves bankrupt
Council for the Advancement of Communication with Debt People
An examination body to check if the signatures are valid on all the financial documentations. They have now rebranded themselves as “Signature” to help people sign up for more debt.
Debt Cultural Centre
A meeting place for debt collectors
Getting people into debt first time. Every time.
