The increasing problem of debt

The increasing problem of debt

One of our key aims is to help create capacity in tackling debt. This is why we are supporting a group of churches in Mansfield, who are working together and partnering with the charity Community Money Advice to increase the provision of free debt advice in Mansfield. This has been severely affected by the funding cuts, at a time when demand is increasing, due to the benefit changes and cost of living rises. I was very interested to read a recent report by Church Action on Poverty which highlights some of the problems people are facing. It's well worth a read -  http://www.church-poverty.org.uk/drowningindebt/report
