Debt Advice Foundation Charity Launches New Helpline

Registered UK charity, Debt Advice Foundation, which promotes research and education around debt issues, has launched a freephone hotline to help deal with the increasing demand for support from people struggling with debt and money worries - with a team of counsellors to provide speedy debt advice and practical support.

The telephone service, along with the new Debt Advice Foundation website, will officially launch on Monday 10 August 2009. It follows a 27.4% increase in the number of people turning to personal insolvency (IVA or bankruptcy) during April to June 2009 compared with the same period last year – and reports that existing charities/agencies are struggling to cope with the increased demand for help.
