Debt Help Guides

Here at MMT we understand what it feels like to suffer from financial hardship. People experience financial difficulties for all sorts of reasons – maybe you’ve faced redundancy and lost your job, or your household income has decreased because of a relationship breakdown; perhaps you are unable to work because of accident or illness, or there has been an unexpected crisis. As a result, you might have begun to rely on credit cards or payday loans, and before you know it your minimum monthly payments are so high that your debt has become unmanageable.

If this is something you are currently experiencing you should seek help now, we recommend you contact one of the following:
