Way Forward is a not for-profit-organisation helping people in financial difficulty become debt free.

We have a dedicated team who provide free debt advice and free financial support to help you deal with your debt and set up a solution. Our hardship advocates have extensive experience handling creditors, negotiating better outcomes and providing debt relief for our clients.

At Way Forward, we are a debt relief charity with a vision to create a society free from problem debt.  We help those in debt get back on their feet.

How we can help you

  • 1We provide free assistance to people in financial hardship but who still have income, by helping them to get out of debt faster
  • 2We establish a workable budget
  • 3We advocate for affordable arrangements with creditors (importantly – we are not a Part IX Debt Agreement or Bankruptcy)
  • 4We help with debt repayments, so you can make one regular payment to us, which we then distribute to your creditors

“Having this fixed payment, knowing that there’s a final term to the repayments and Way Forward managing things on my behalf allows me to focus a lot more on important things like getting the business back on track.”
