Structure and history

MABS operates from over 60 offices nationwide. The MABS offices operate an appointment scheduling system and each service is staffed by experienced Money Advisers who work with clients experiencing difficulties with a wide range of personal debts including personal loans, mortgages, credit card debt, catalogue debts, debts to legal moneylenders and hire purchases.

The Citizens Information Board is currently restructuring the network of MABS. By the end of 2018 there will be eight Regional Money Advice and Budgeting Services companies. The change is at Board level only.

MABS also has a Helpline (0761 07 2000) that operates Monday to Friday from 9am to 8pm.

MABS is funded and supported by the Citizens Information Board.
