Money Lifeline offers free, helpful and confidential advice on debt and how to manage your money.
We are staffed by volunteers from local churches and have received full training in debt advice. We work hard to keep our skills and knowledge up to date: we come from a variety of backgrounds and our volunteers have had different careers and interests.
Money Lifeline is a registered charity which was set up in Basingstoke in 2007: no charge is ever made for our services.
We are affiliated to the national charity Community Money Advice who support a network of debt advice centres across the country. We work with other local organisations to make sure that we do our best to meet our clients' needs.
Money Lifeline is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority. and registered with the Information Commissioner's Office.

‘Fantastic support, amazing people, great help, understanding, no judgement – without their help I would not have gone

' I found my adviser to be both compassionate and informative with a grounded approach to managing debt which was a real comfort'
'I feel confident knowing that the problem debt I once had, is now in hand, thanks to their intervention. Thank you!'
When I arrived I was nervous and really felt quite helpless. I believed that there was nothing I could do about my debt and it was horrible.
If it was not for the nonjudgmental, empathetic dedication I received I would still be in debt and I cannot thank you enough
