Spot danger signs of debt

Debt isn’t something for people to be terrified of, but it’s something they mustn’t ignore. Our homes are among the most precious things we have, so when we’re juggling money, along with basic food and utilities, rent should always take first place.

Many people feel overwhelmed by their spending and put payments to credit companies before essential services like rent and utilities. 50% of people in debt wait a year before seeking help. In this time their financial situation often gets much worse.
