Beverley families struggling with debt and money problems are offered hope as a new debt advice centre is launched in Beverley.
The new centre is part of the Community Money Advice network where trained debt advisers offer free, confidential, face-to-face advice and support to help people find relief from debt and financial hardship.
Statistics show that debt and money problems affect around 1 in 10 households and the recent pandemic has had a disproportionate financial impact on the poorest.
33% of people have less than £600 in savings* therefore when a sudden change in circumstances happens such as reduction of income, redundancy or an unexpected bill, families can struggle to meet their financial commitments.
As a result of the growing debt crisis in the UK, over the past 12 months, 32 new centres were opened through the Community Money Advice network which helped 19,000 people with debt and money problems through 1,200 trained advisors.
Debt Centre manager Steven Jarvis from Hull & East Yorkshire CMA Connect, says:
“Family budgets are often extremely tight, and it is very easy to find debts spiral out of control, particularly when family circumstances change.”
“We are keen to make debt advice available to all in Beverley who need it. Our trained advisors will offer free, confidential face to face advice and support to anyone struggling with debt and money problems. It is possible to find freedom from debt and hope for the future”
Hull & East Yorkshire CMA Connect encourages anyone who is experiencing stress from money problems to seek professional help.
