Talk to them about going to uni and worries about your credit file for getting a student loan ? (I guess that is your worry?) and tell them your parents have offered to helpwith your other smaller debts and it is just this Very one you are not going to be able to manage.
      Thanks I will, and I will let you know what they say xx

        They really are easy and lovely to speak with. I absolutely hate using the phone ( as lots of people on here will testify to) and I could do it, so you definitely can xx

          Hi
          I thought I would let you know how I got on Step change were very good, they recommend that set up a dmp so it takes the stress away from me trying to deal with them direct. I explained that my parents are willing to pay off my small balance on my card and would meet the monthly payments on my other debt. However Step Change advised me that I should include ALL my debts if I am going to take out a dmp because time to time my other creditors may look at my credit file and see that I am prioritising one debt for another (which I am not because I wouldn't be paying it ) but I see where they are coming from, however they said if the balance could be cleared quickly then it would no longer be a debt. So what we have decided to do is to clear the small balance credit card (£200) in two months and then add the rest of all my debts Very, Aqua Card and JD Williams to a dmp then at least it will all be out there on the table so to speak, and my parents don't have to commit to helping me out long term and at least I will know something will be paid off each of them, even though it wont be much. So in short we will clear this credit card completely and I will add my three remaining creditors to a dmp in 2 months. In the meantime I will pay Very a token payment. I have paid this month and I will pay a token payment next month to Very Aqua and JD williams, then when the third months payment is due I can tell them that I am working with Step Change and that I am in the process of taking out a dmp. What do you think Ames ?? xxx

              I really do, I was so stressed and it was really starting to have an affect on me. I was hoping t struggle on and try and keep meeting my payments but there comes a point where you just can't do it anymore. My only concern now is what actions Very make take against me in these next two months, while I have to make reduced payments but Step Change said just pay them something to show willing. I think I will feel relieved when the dmp is in place and than at least I know it is getting sorted. I cannot thank all you lovely people enough for all your help, and for being there for me, especially you Amethyst, you have been a fantastic support.....and by the way they said that my student finance would not be affected by a dmp....I hope I can come on here through the whole process for a bit of moral support ? Thank you again...xxx

                Good I'm so pleased. I know it is tough to take these first steps and how much of a weight can be lifted once you take the bull by the horns. Just talking about it helps

                Give Very the reference number from Stepchange - they should have given you one, tell Very you are talking with Stepchange so they should put things on hold for a month.

                Well done and yes of course we're here for whatever you need xxxxxxxx

                  Thank you.....I do have a ref no but it's going to take approx 2 months to sort out, as it gives time to clear the credit card. Do you think they could put it on hold for 2 months or should I just expect it to be put on hold for one ? Sorry for all these questions. I am going to end up driving you crazy !! xxxx
