When we can’t help

 

Some of our clients may be facing some difficult life stressors.  We understand how important the right support can make, being available when it’s needed.  Sustain-a-Bill may not always be the qualified support required, or be available when you need us the most.  We’d like you to know that the Samaritans offer a safe place to talk, any time day or night. They allow you to sensitively discuss your options and explore your own feelings, offering several ways to contact them if you’re not ready to talk direct.  If you do feel you need expert advice for yourself or someone you care for you can call them on 116 123 (UK/ROI). 

We Will Listen

 If you spot anything we miss, have concerns or think we can be doing things better (because there’s always a better way) DO PLEASE GET IN TOUCH. 

We will even develop a reward plan for those of you who help us get things right… however in the spirit of this disclaimer we will not be held responsible for the reward being of a certain value or size, or of it being received by a certain date or in a certain way.
