As of Monday 11th May we have a temporary over the phone process for new clients. This is a big relief to us debt coaches as we know there is an incredible need, which will only increase over the next few months. We are 'seeing' new clients that were already booked in prior to lockdown as a priority, but new client bookings are now being taken on 0800 328 0006. We have appointment availability in July and August at the moment.

West Berkshire Coronorvirus Diaries
(See below an excerpt from a working from home secondary school teacher )
'' Now, I am aware that I am very privileged in my position and that therefore, a lot of this will not be applicable to the masses – but maybe some of the small few of you who read this. I live at home with my Mum, Step-Dad, and younger brother; I pay rent; I have a separate room that I can sit and complete my work in; I have a cushion on the dining room chair that I am using to aid with my back pain; I’m getting used to the Blue Filter glasses that I have ordered to try and support my headaches; I do not have any additional responsibilities in my school; I have a shared Year Eleven class.
Teaching during a global pandemic – I don’t remember the unit on this at University! That being said, we have had to adapt extremely quickly to a situation that we were thrust under. Before I go any further, I just want to stop and say how impressed I am that we have adapted so quickly and so well. So many generous individuals on Twitter, and within schools trying to help in anyway that they can. Even my brother (someone who hated school) said that he would be willing to come in and teach if staffing levels got too low! This was pre-closure.''
