Can you help me get a loan?

We do not recommend getting a loan to pay off debts that you are struggling to repay. Depending on your situation, there may be other more suitable options that you can consider.

  • If you are struggling because you need extra income, check whether you can increase your income by claiming any extra benefits or tax credits. You can do this through My Money Steps. Alternatively, use the Government's benefits adviser tool or the Turn2us benefits calculator to help you find out what you might be entitled to.

  • If you can afford your debts, but you would like advice about saving, budgeting, financial products and managing your money, check the government’s Money Advice Service website.
