» What we do?
We are for individuals or families, primarily those on low incomes, who need guidance in managing their finances in order to avoid difficulties with creditors.
» What is the Aim of the Service?
The primary aim of MABS is to help people cope with debt and to take control of their own finances. It supports people by assisting them to work through their budget and make proposals to creditors whilst ensuring that all their essential requirements (food, housing, fuel etc) are protected. It also encourages and supports people to plan for credit in the future by saving a small amount each week in their local credit union.
» What kind of service is it?
The service is free, independent and confidential. Trained non-judgmental Money Advisors will help a person to make their own decisions by giving the information and advice they will need to bring their situation under control. It is not important why or how a person got into difficulties - what is important is to deal with the situation as it is now.
