Debt advice

Many people experience some level of debt or worry about money at some time in their lives, and may need help to deal with this. The Money Advice Service offers unbiased information on managing your money.

If you are looking for advice on a debt problem or find you have more money going out than coming in, National Debtline can offer free independent advice on how best to deal with your debts.

If you are experiencing serious debt, for example paying your mortgage or other debts with credit, using credit to buy everyday essentials, or are facing legal action, contact our debt advice team to get expert personalised advice.

If you're having problems paying your council tax or business rates please let us know by using our council tax contact form or our business rates contact form. In an emergency please call 0161 793 2500.

For all debt advice call the Debt Advice Line, 0800 345 7323 Mondays and Wednesdays 1.00pm to 4.00pm.

Borrowing money

Everyone seems to be after your money these days. For an easy way to save and an affordable way to borrow from a responsible lender, check out Salford Credit Union or Moneyline.

If you have been offered a cash loan, threatened if you don't repay, or charged an extortionate repayment rate by someone without an appropriate licence, then you can report them to the government's Illegal Money Lending Team in confidence and get help.
