Debt counselling service maintained through lockdown

People who find themselves in financial difficulty are reminded that a confidential Debt Counselling Service remains available to them during the Island’s second lockdown. 

The service, run by the Isle of Man Government’s Office of Fair Trading (OFT), gives people the opportunity to talk to a specialist debt counsellor about their financial concerns. 

Martyn Perkins MHK, Chair of the OFT, told B365: ‘With people perhaps having overspent over the Christmas and New Year period and the likelihood of higher heating bills arising from the winter lockdown, it is imperative that we maintain this important service.’   

You can contact the Debt Counselling Service by emailing, by calling (01624) 686500 or through their website. Further guidance on budgeting is available in a free booklet which is available by contacting the Debt Counselling Service or can be found online
