Along with many other UK consumer credit companies, we recognise our collective responsibility to help consumers who get into difficulty with debt. Hence we are happy to contribute to the funding of free money and debt advice services across the UK where we operate.
We also have a strict policy of signposting our own customers to the relevant agency if they begin to struggle with their borrowing. Our staff are trained to look out for problems and we include information and contact details for our money advice partners in our contract documentation and supporting literature.
We are happy to support and refer customers to the following free money advice agencies:
0808 808 4000
020 7407 4070
The Debt Counsellors Charitable Trust
0300 456 2726
The Money Charity
020 7062 8933
0800 138 1111
In-Store Money Surgeries
We are also looking at new ways we can work collaboratively with money advice partners to bring a wider range of services to our customers. For instance, we are piloting walk-in Money Surgeries in some of our busiest city centre Money Shop stores. Customers are offered short consultations with leading financial capability charity, The Money Charity, on any money issue or concern they might have. The advice is entirely independent and delivered by The Money Charity. The Money Shop assists with funding, publicity and hosting services only.
