Boost your income

Learn how to increase your income, manage debt and budget for your household.

The three main ways to boost your income


Making the money you already have go further by creating a household budget

This is a good idea if you:

  • often do not know where your money is going or what you are spending it on, or
  • forget to set aside money for things you pay yearly or infrequently, like insurance, car tax, MOTs, or dentist visits or,
  • would like to feel more in control of your money, and less anxious about your ability to pay for the things you need.


Earning more money by checking if you can get more benefits

This is a good idea if:

  • You haven’t checked in a while, or
  • Things have changed (like if you have moved house, had a child, changed jobs, or become a single parent).


Getting back on top of debt and changing your debt repayments

This is a good idea if you:

  • haven’t agreed an affordable debt repayment plan with your supplier(s),
  • do not have enough money to pay repayments and your ongoing bills,
  • have a debt repayment plan, but now you can’t afford to pay what you agreed.
