We work with a local Organisation to be able to provide support to Carers who may be in debt. They can help with:
- Debt relief orders, Bankruptcies and Debt Management plans.
- Gathering information on your situation and address issues as above or look at other urgent matters such as bailiff action, repossession and court actions
- Obtain credit reports and can contact companies on your behalf.
- Help create a budget and will explain all the options to help you deal with debt.
We know lots of people struggle in silence when it comes to Debt but please be assured you will be supported in a non-judgemental manner and all information will be kept strictly confidential.

What Carers have told us about this support:
“I was lost in my debt and didn’t know where to turn. After contacting Durham County Carers Support for advice, I felt like a weight had been lifted”.
“This support give me the tools I needed to take control of my finances and feel more confident in what I was doing for a change”.
“I didn’t realise they could contact the companies on my behalf. I couldn’t have done this without them”.
“It’s embarrassing to talk about debts and money, but they made me feel relaxed and that they were on my side”.
