If you’re having serious debt problems (like many others in the UK) and you’re struggling to keep up with debt payments on things like credit cards, loans and store cards, a debt management plan (DMP) may be right for you.
A debt management plan may be one cure to your debt issues. A debt management plan is an informal agreement between you and your creditors for paying back your non-priority debts.
We can help you work out one set monthly payment, which is divided between your creditors.
Most DMPs are managed by a DMP provider who deals with your creditors for you. This means you don’t need to deal with your creditors yourself.
A DMP is not legally binding, meaning you’re not tied in for a minimum period and can cancel it at any time.
A DMP does not write off your debt but it allows you to repay your creditors at a rate you can afford.
