Problem debt is something that can happen to anyone. It can result from unexpected bills or changes to employment. You can get free, expert debt advice from Bath & North East Somerset Citizens Advice.

Lockdowns, furloughs, Universal Credit cuts and increasing fuel and store goods costs are making life harder for many people.

Our research shows that some residents are using credit and store cards to deal with financial pressures. This is pushing them further into debt.

People often get into debt through no fault of their own. Despite this, there is still a stigma of shame attached to going into debt. Due to this, some of those who are in debt resist asking for help.

It’s important that you don’t let debt become unmanageable. Get help with your debt by accessing the following links or calling our Adviceline.
