National Debt Helpline is a not-for-profit service that helps people tackle their debt problems. Their professional financial counsellors offer a free, independent, and confidential service. They are not a lender and don’t make money from their service.

They’re simply there to help you get back on track.

The financial counsellors are non-judgemental, qualified professionals who work in communities across Australia.

When you call, try to have the following on hand:

  • details of your income
  • a list of all debts
  • copies of (or information about) all loan agreements
  • details of current and outstanding bills
  • copies of (or information about) any court documents you’ve received
  • letters about bills and debts that seem urgent
  • If you don’t have everything, don’t worry. They’ll work through it with you when you call.

While your debt may seem a scary and an overwhelming problem, it’s important to remember that it doesn’t have to be. There are ways to make your debts more manageable so that you can breathe a bit easier.
