Debt: where to get help?

StepChange Debt Charity has released new figures showing that nearly nine thousand people in the East of England contacted them over debt problems in 2013 - an increase of two and a half thousand on the previous year.

The Charity is urging to people to recognise that they may have a debt problem if they are doing any of the following:

  • juggling or falling behind on essential household bills
  • borrowing to make it through to pay day
  • making just the minimum repayments on your debts
  • borrowing more to pay off existing debts
  • getting hit by late payments or overdraft charges
