Money worries

  • Do you find yourself worrying about bills you cant pay?
  • Have you taken out or considered a payday loan?
  • Do you worry when the phone rings?
  • Refuse to open letters that arrive for you?
  • Regularly run out of money?
  • Have debts that you are struggling to afford?
  • Cant pay your rent or buy food?

Debts and money problems happen for many reasons. Sometimes it is the unexpected: a delay in funding or benefits, a drop in income despite your best efforts to cut costs and sometimes lack of budgeting skills that contributes to difficulties over time.

We are not here to judge, we are here to help you find a way of dealing with problems so that you can concentrate on your studies. Ignoring a problem doesnt make the problem go away - no matter how hard it may be to acknowledge - this is the only way to solve it.
