When you face financial problems or can no longer pay off your loan or credit, you can, in some cases, get support from a debt mediation service.
For debt mediation, you can either contact your local Public Centre for Social Welfare (PCSW), or General Welfare Centre (CAW). Information on the PCSWs and their operation can be found on the website that lists all PCSWs of the Brussels-Capital Region. The Brussels-Capital Region also boasts several General Welfare Centres (CAWs). Some non-profit organisations can also take on the role of debt mediator.
In addition, lawyers, notaries and bailiffs can also mediate debts.
To obtain the details of a recognised debt mediation service in the Brussels-Capital Region, it is best to contact your local council. Some PCSWs have set up a so-called ‘Energy Unit’ to help families keep their energy bills in check.
The various debt mediation services in Brussels can be found on the Common Community Commission website. In addition, you will also find extensive information and explanations concerning debt.
The Credit and Debt Observatory lists all the institutions and organisations involved in credit and debt. It contains data on debt mediation services and other social organisations in the Brussels-Capital Region.
