Pay a little extra – and get Christmas wrapped up!

Engagement / News


It’s easy to get carried away over the festive season and put off paying for the essentials, such as rent and other household bills.

But all too easily this can lead to a financial hangover and the difficult stress of debt to deal with at the start of the new year.

Ways to keep control

  • Pay a little extra each week to cover your rent over Christmas and New Year. However small the amount, it all adds up.
  • Set up a direct debit online to pay your rent.
  • Go to our pay your rent page for lots of different ways to pay online, including Allpay, PayPoint, direct debit, by phone and more.
  • In debt? Or know you’re heading that way? Call us now. We can help you to pay off your debt in affordable weekly instalments, help you with budgeting, check you’re on the correct benefits or put you in touch with a debt agency for help and advice.

Whatever your situation get in touch as soon as possible so that we can help and support you.  Here’s what one resident had to say.

“I was really worried about asking for help, but the adviser really put me at my ease. I feel a bit more in control and have a plan to manage things better now”
