Sharing and disclosure
If you have a personal, health or other issue that is making it harder to manage your finances you can tell us.
If you tell us, it could help us to provide you with a better service. We'll also keep the information confidential.
Need extra support
We work with Citizens Advice and Mental Health and Money Advice in England so that we can offer telephone casework in some circumstances. Caseworkers can act on your behalf. We also refer to other organisations who can give further help. You can read more about getting extra support.
