Christians Against Poverty Debt Advice
WE are deeply saddened to hear about the proposed cuts to the Citizens Advice Bureaux resulting in fewer advisers available to help people with spiralling debts.
Every day we are receiving calls from people whose out-of-control debt has driven their household into a trap of poverty and despair requiring careful expert help to escape.
Debt is mostly caused by a change in circumstances most typically job losses, relationship breakdown death or illness in the family, leaving people often very vulnerable with multiple life problems.
We are concerned that in a state of extreme stress, people will add to their debts by making poor decisions about credit and pay over the odds for advice they can get for free.
The Fenland Christians Against Poverty centre along with the CAB and others offers a much-needed lifeline free of charge to local people and we can only guess at the terrible impact these cuts may have.
