How we can help
We will do our best to give you the information you need, the way you prefer to receive it. We are guided by our vulnerable client team, who have put procedures in place to make sure you are comfortable at all times.
We don’t believe in pressure, which is why we will only contact you at a time that suits you and our team will speak at your pace. If you want to receive debt advice over time, we can spread this over a few sessions, so it doesn’t feel too overwhelming.
To support our clients who require extra visual support, we can offer information in braille and large print. In addition to this, we can also send information over via email, so this can be read aloud by any software the user may have. We can also help deaf clients or those with hearing loss by communicating over text, email and through the webchat service on our website.
How to get debt advice
To ensure we offer debt advice in a way that is comfortable for you, we offer a range of contact options. You can get debt advice via:
- Telephone – call us on 0800 280 2816
- Online – fill out a quick form on our website and get free advice
- Live Chat – start a conversation with our live chat agents on our website
To support these communication methods, we recommend using the following resources to help you:
Relay UK – they help people with hearing and speech difficulties communicate with anyone over the phone. You can use them to speak to a PayPlan adviser.
