What does Farnham Money Advice do to help?
If you accept our help, then we basically step into the gap between you and your creditors, negotiating repayment agreements on your behalf, or trying to get debts written off or reduced if circumstances make that the only alternative.
Part of what we do to help you regain control of your finances is to produce a financial statement (budget) of your income and expenditure. If you would like to do this to see where you stand financially each month, we can help you formulate your financial statement.
