National Debtline caller
The advice I received from Business Debtline was life-changing. I have been anxious and stressed about my debts for months, but now, thanks to you, I have a clear way forward and expect to be able to resolve my issues within the next few weeks.

Debt and Mental Health Evidence Form
First launched in 2008, the Debt and Mental Health Evidence Form provides creditors with a way to collect external evidence about a customer’s mental health situation to decide what support to give to that customer.
"Getting to this point [launch of new DMHEF] has taken a lot of hard work from Money and Mental Health Policy Institute, Money Advice Liaison Group, Money Advice Trust, UK Finance, Credit Services Association, Department of Health and Social Care and others. But, importantly, this effort will hopefully make a practical difference to many people."
