If you need to buy new things for your home such as a washing machine but need a loan to do it; our Income Management Team Leader can help you find a loan with Leeds Credit Union that will not cost you lots of money.

Also if you are struggling with debt, including rent arrears, our Income Management Team Leader can arrange for you to see a debt worker from Step Change Debt Charity who will help you get control of the debts.

The Welfare Reform Act has made big changes to Benefits since April 2013. If you are not working your benefits may have dropped giving you less money.

As things like food, gas and electricity get more expensive (if you are working or not), you may have to change the way you spend money so that you save money for essentials.

Our Income Management Team Leader will be able to help you budget your money better and cut out spending where you do not need to. Call 0113 200 7753 today, to make an appointment.
