Financial inclusion and debt advice

Providing debt and budgetary advice

 

We help people in need rebuild their lives financially with our support and advice.

Often, people have been deeply in debt when they first access a Salvation Army Financial Inclusion Service. Sometimes at the point where their home is about to be repossessed, or they are about to be evicted. As a result of the help we provide, people’s lives are often transformed.
