The UK Bill Help Clearinghouse is a central repository for the vast amounts of information that affects low and moderate income households. The Clearinghouse is not a government institution. Instead, this service began as a collaborative effort of Personal Financial Network, Inc. and Vision Credit Education, Inc., two community service organisations that have provided advocacy and education to consumers in the UK and across the pond in the US.
This is not a sales organisation, nor do we favour any particular service over another. Our objective is to provide concise information, resources and referrals to the proper outlets to ensure that you get the assistance you need with bills and debts that are causing financial hardship. You may discover that we have far more information about the programmes and options available to you from a variety of sources. Various government agencies do provide information on many of these programmes. Whenever possible we try to link you to these official sources for reference, providing you with a consolidated hub for discovering information about the different tools and assistance available that can help you pay your bills during difficult financial circumstances. If we can redirect you away from a predatory lender and help you find a food bank or utility assistance programme, then we have helped you find a better solution to your problems.
Our organisations have helped thousands of individuals deal with money problems and financial difficulties over the years. It is our sincerest hope that we can link you with the support necessary when you are in your time of need.
