Dear London Borough of Redbridge,

Thank you for your email

Debt management plans are usually used when either:

- One can only afford to pay creditors a small amount each month
- One has debt problems but will be able to make repayments in a few months

So, for example Redbridge Council may have an internal team supporting and advising people on repayments and debt management. Alternatively, Redbridge Council may signpost or refer people to oganisations such as Citizens Advice Redbridge for debt management support.

Yours sincerely,

Jon Abrams
