About Us

History and behind the scenes


Lifeline Debt Advice was set up in 2008 by Sandbach Methodist Church (now part of Unity Methodist Church charity 1173520) and offers face to face appointments in its office in the Wesley Centre.

In 2023 we became a CMA Connect Centre. Our trained Money Mentors work with qualified Debt Advisers at Community Money Advice, who communicate with creditors on your behalf and offer advice on available debt options to resolve your financial situation. Our Money Mentors work with you throughout the debt advice process.

We are affiliated to the national charity Community Money Advice.

We are staffed entirely by volunteers who come mainly, but not exclusively from the Christian Community. We offer confidential, non-judgmental help and debt advice to anyone regardless of background or belief.
