Debts and money
Financial problems are one of the main reasons that people get into difficulty. This is often as a result of changed circumstances. Unfortunately we are not in a position to give money to any individual but we can help in other ways. For specific advice on debt, we would suggest contacting Debtline 0114-255 4555
