Debt problems and the cost of living

Whether you've just graduated from university, you're expecting a baby or you're paying residential care costs, as the long term cost of living increases so does the number of households facing money worries.

Debt problems and the cost of living

The long term cost of living

Debt problems are not just caused by spending too much on your credit cards, or signing up for too many loans. There are a multitude of costs that you have to bear during every stage of your life, from looking after children to preparing for elderly care. Given the median wage in the UK is less than £26,000 per year it's not surprising that debt builds up.

We can provide debt help to assist you in overcoming your money worries, so you can face the next long term cost with confidence.
