The Aims of the Service:

Once the client's financial situation stabilises, they can gradually regain control of their finances, as they feel able

How The Service Works:

Referral from a Money Advisor

Clients may be referred from a money advisor or welfare rights worker after having discussed their financial situation in detail and deciding that The Budgeting Service is the right option for them

The money advisor will contact the client's creditors and make an offer of repayment

once an offer of repayment has been agreed, the client then has two options:

(I) Full Financial Management

- clients arrange for their salary or benefits to be paid into an account set up by The Budgeting Service and The Budgeting Service will

make payments to their creditors and / or their ongoing liabilities where appropriate

 - the remainder of the client's monies are then paid into the client's own bank or credit union account

(II) Standing Order

- the client arranges to pay a set amount of money into an account set up by The Budgeting Service via standing order.

 - The Budgeting Service will make payments to their creditors

Self Referral

If you need assistance paying debts, you can self-refer to The Budgeting Service if you have already seen a money advisor and a

repayment agreement has been put in place.

Bill Payment Service

If you need assistance in paying ongoing liabilities; ie gas, electricity, phone bill, TV licence etc, you can self-refer and use our bill payment service
