Debt Management Plan
Consolidate debts into affordable, flexible payments without getting another loan.
- One weekly or monthly payment.
- We deal with your creditors.
- Payments from £80 per month.
A debt management plan allows you to repay your debts at an affordable level once you have met your living expenses.
It's an arrangement with your creditors (the companies to whom you owe money) negotiated by us, which allows you to repay credit based on what you can afford, rather than how much you owe.

While we can't guarantee that any creditor will agree to do this for any given debt, we generally expect them to do so once a reduced offer of repayment has been accepted.
