Where can I get free credit advice?

If you require credit advice because you are experiencing financial difficulties and you would like to discuss your options, you can call Debt Advice Foundation’s free, confidential helpline on 0800 043 40 50.

If you’re considering taking out a loan for any reason other than for consolidating existing debts and would like credit advice then the Financial Services Authority’s Money Advice Service website can help you decide which factors are important when comparing credit products.
