Rainy Day Trust highlights debt advice

Industry charity Rainy Day Trust (RDT)  is finding yet another way of putting meaning into its strapline ‘If you need us, we are here. If you don’t, we need you!’. The end of May saw the ban on evictions being lifted, meaning that renters could be forced out of properties by bailiffs, something which had paused during the pandemic.

RDT ceo Bryan Clover wants to draw attention to this, appealing to company bosses to promote the Rainy Day Trust’s free debt advice programme to staff. He states: “It could be that someone who works for you is affected by this and is terrified at the prospect of losing their home.  The Rainy Day Trust can not only help with clearing rent arrears but also put other measures in place to help them increase their income and reduce debt overall.  Asking for help is not a failure; it shows the strength needed to tackle a difficult problem.”

The RDT debt advice programme is free to all, not just those on low incomes. Likewise, the telephone counselling service is also free to all.  “Working with us demonstrates to staff that you have their wellbeing at heart and aids staff retention,” says Bryan. “Please encourage anyone with worries to get in touch – 0800 915 4627. We have Debt Advice and Counselling leaflets which we can share with you to print out. They’re the perfect adornment for the back of a toilet door!  Or a canteen!  Or a staff rest room. Or anywhere else that people can see them.”
