Please any advice

Hi so to cut a long story short I lost my mum 6 years ago and I got myself into a gambling addiction which I have now knocked on the head but this has left me in 7,760 worth of debt, these are payday loans, credit cards and overdrafts I really need help. I want to start a debt management plan but nobody seems to want to help. I’ve been to citizen advice made countless phone calls I just feel like I’ve nowhere to turn.

    Hi Parkersmum and welcome to the forum :)

    The first thing you need to do is to stop worrying as you are now taking action to address your financial difficulties. A solution will be found. :)

    The second thing you need to do, is to post up your Statement of Affairs (SOA), so we can take a good look at your finances. We can then advise on the best course of action. :)

    Please complete an SOA, using the link below. And please remember to click on the 'format for MSE' button, which is near the bottom of the form.
    I work within the voluntary sector, supporting vulnerable people to rebuild their lives.

    I love my job

    Hello, I’m in a similar position to you in both aspects. Please do an soa. I’m trying to sort my finances out too but will help as much as I can.
