Are you worrying about personal debt?
It is a sad fact in the last decade household debt has doubled. British households owe an average of £54,000 according to a report by the Centre for Social Justice. The study found that shockingly more than 5,000 people are being made homeless each year because of mortgage or rent debts. Rising energy bills were among the contributing factors.
The average cost of living has increased by 25% over the last 5 years! Rising living costs coupled with stagnant wages has put pressure on millions of families. If you are worrying about your finances don’t panic, you are not alone.
We are bombarded with ads on the radio and TV which encourage us to borrow money to cover our debts. It is near impossible to walk down the street these days without seeing a loan company offering you instant cash and competitive repayments. But there is an easy solution. Wrong. Sadly, not all debt advice out there is good and some debt advisers are not qualified or regulated.
If you are struggling with personal debt, don’t struggle alone.
