Welcome to the National Charter for Church Youth Workers.
We’re helping churches reach the highest standards in the way they employ a youth worker.
Encouraged, inspired, enthusiastic and spiritually-alive youth workers do better youth work. And young people need as much of that as possible!
The Charter is being run across all denominations and churches.
The Charter is not profit-making, and only charges a small administration fee to cover basic costs.
The Charter is all about making a positive difference to churches, to youth workers and, above all, to young people.
New – Helping Youth Workers Build Credit to Get a Phone
Do not Apply for Expensive Handsets
Forget the Galaxy S10+ or the iPhone 11 Pro, at least for now. With poor credit, it’s hard enough to obtain a contract phone, let alone one with a high-end gadget. When you apply for cheaper devices, you’ll have a better chance of getting approved.
Inquire About Sim Only Offers
Sim only contracts offer the same benefits as a regular phone contract, only without the handset. But this makes the plan even cheaper and easier to get approved for. If you’re still happy with your old gadget or have the cash to pay for your new phone outright, a sim only offer can give you more savings for the long-term.
Prepare a Deposit
Depending on your credit score, some networks may require you to provide security deposit, and the amount may also vary depending on the handset you want (a report from specialist firm MobileHawk.co.uk states a deposit amounting to 30% of the outright cost is a good start). The more deposit you’re willing to provide, the likelier it is to get approved. Don’t worry though, because you may be able to get this money back as you pay your bills on time.
Find a Guarantor
If none of the above tactics work, you may need the help of a guarantor to make the application for contract that much easier. If you have a guarantor, the network will look at that person’s credit score, not yours. If a friend, relative, colleague, or anyone else you know with good credit is willing to cosign your application for bad credit contract phones, this will increase your chances.
Even though we can show you ways how to get accepted for bad credit mobile phones, we still recommend that you start on actively fixing your credit score. By paying all your bills on time, keeping your balances low, and spacing out your credit applications, you will notice some improvements so you won’t have to need our services in the future.
