INFORMATION TIP - DEBT (including Debt Relief Orders and Bankruptcy Fees)

If you are looking for help with the cost of debt relief orders or bankruptcy fees, help may be available to you from some charitable funds, if you meet the qualifying rules (eligibility criteria) for their help.

Our Grants Search does not tag charitable fund schemes by  "Debt Relief Orders", "DROs", "Bankruptcy" or "Bankruptcy fees".

To find charitable funds that may be able to help you, you need to search on all aspects of your circumstances that may be relevant – e.g. occupation (remember to think about the industries you have worked in as well as the jobs you have had), health conditions, nationality – using the filters of the Grants Search once you have done your initial search on postcode, age and gender.

Once you have a list of charitable funds based on your search, check the profiles for information on who they help and what they help with.

Some charities give grants according to individual need. If the profile doesn’t specifically state that the charity doesn’t give grants for bankruptcy fees, it may be worth contacting any charities that match your circumstances and background to ask if they can help.

Please note: Where a charitable fund might give help towards the cost of debt relief orders or bankruptcy fees, they will only consider this if you have received debt advice from a recognised debt advice agency and considered all the options available to you.
