Debt Advice

The main aim of the Debt Advice Service here in Dunstable is to empower people to manage their own finances and enable them to feel more in control of their financial situation. 

We offer a free, confidential service and support to anyone in the local community who is in debt.  We negotiate with creditors and agree a repayment plan that is reasonable and affordable enabling them to make regular payments to their creditors thus reducing their debt and become debt free.  Because we  negotiate with the creditors, people often feel an immediate relief from the burden of their debts and feel a weight has been lifted from their shoulders

Some of our clients have mental health issues, suffer from domestic violence or have been thrust into debt by a sudden illness, accident leading to disability or loss of income.  We are able to support clients with practical things such as food parcels as well as signpost them to other agencies that may be able to help them with other issues.  

The following is a case study of one person who has used our service and her words of appreciation.  The Salvation Army Debt Advice Turned my Life Around  “I am so grateful to you for the help you have given me.  You are like friends to me and I don’t know where I would be now without the help you gave me.  You took time to listen to me and really care.  I don’t lie awake all night now worrying about my debts.  I felt like they were getting out of control.  I now feel more in control of my life.  I will never forget the kindness you showed me”  anon 

For more information or an appointment, please contact the Debt Advice Team on 01582 343680 or email dunstabledas@salvationarmy.org.uk

Soup Kitchen

Our Soup Kitchen was set up in December 2010 to combat the issue of feeding the homeless in the local community. Now, a team of 15 provide a weekly service providing a meal, clothing, hot showers and a listening ear to a huge number of needy people as they come through our doors every Wednesday evening throughout the year.

If you are interested in helping us in some way please contact us.

Prayer

We believe in a God who loves us, listens to us and answers our prayers.

We have a weekly prayer meeting available for anyone to attend on Tuesdays at 7pm until 7.45pm. In addition our newsletter includes prayer requests for those who want to pray at home.

Any requests for prayer can be made in a prayer book in the foyer of our building or by email / phone message.
