Debt Action NI

Debt Action NI is an Advice NI project that has been operating since 2009. Debt Action NI is aimed at helping the most financially vulnerable in Northern Ireland. We are funded by Department of Enterprise, Trade & Investment and supported by our members and Payplan, the UK’s largest provider of free debt solutions, including Debt Management Plans (DMP’s) and Individual Voluntary Arrangements (IVA’s). The purpose of the project is to help people manage their debts better and empower people to become more financially capable by taking control of their own finances.

Debt Action NI advisers provide a free, confidential and impartial service open to anyone concerned about their finances. It is an integrated service with a number of access options. People can call our Freephone helpline 0800 917 4607 to speak directly to an adviser between 8.00 am and 9.00 pm Monday to Friday and 9.00 am to 3.00pm on a Saturday. They can log onto our dedicated website, and send an appointment request, email an adviser or interact with our virtual adviser. We also have a list of the contact details and location of advisers in your local area on our website. From the website people can also access an online budgeting tool, Debt Action Plus. People can also text the word ‘Action’ to 81025 and an adviser will call them back. Advisers offer face to face appointments and home visits to those who are most vulnerable.

If you or anyone you know is struggling with money & debt issues, please get in touch we are here to help!
