We offer free impartial money guidance to people who live, work or study in Bolton.
We can help with a range of issues including: high energy costs, budgeting guidance and dealing with debts.
Due to government guidance on Covid-19 we are suspending our face to face appointments and invitation only drop in and will be running all appointments over the phone. If you have an upcoming appointment with Money Skills or Money Advice, we will contact you shortly before your appointment date to make alternative arrangements. If you need to contact Money Skills and nobody is available to take your call, leave a voicemail and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
If you have a telephone appointment with Money Skills, it would be helpful if you could have the following to hand when we call:
Proof of your income (wage slips, benefit award letters, bank statements etc)
Any letters from your creditors (the people you owe money to)
Gas and electric bills
Any court letters
An idea of your regular outgoings such as your rent, council tax, gas & electricity, food shopping etc
