Debt & finance

A Matter of life and debt……….
Has the credit crunch put you on the debt spiral?
Worried about redundancy?
How can the church help people in debt?

It is estimated that as many as seven million people in the UK are at risk of getting into problems over debt because of the state of the economy – and many of them won’t realise how serious, and stressful, the situation can become if it isn’t kept under control. Redundancy is becoming a reality for many people and creates much anxiety and uncertainty.

SUPPORT and ADVICE is available.
