The Money Advice and Budgeting Service (MABS) is concerned that there is an increasing number of people in debt attending court who have no legal representative to support them. Many have never had any dealings with the legal process, are intimidated by it and are often fearful and confused.

MABS advice is that anyone who has been called to attend court should go and should get advice before attending.  Even when legal proceedings have commenced, it’s still not too late and in many cases, with, MABS support, people may still be able to come to a agreement with their lender.
MABS is particularly well placed to advise and assist people who are in debt. It is a free service, is independent, confidential and non-judgemental. It  has over sixty offices nationwide staffed by experienced and well trained money advisers. MABS supports all kinds of people with all kinds of debt.

People concerned about debt issues should contact the MABS helpline at 0761 07 2000 which is available Monday to Friday, 9am to 8pm.

For further information contact: National Traveller MABS at 0761 07 2230.
