John Porter stated that while debt woes are on the rise, there is help out there for big and small problems.
He said that while people in debt “are right to be concerned about finances as personal debt problems are rife in the UK”, help is at hand.
“Our job is to help people when their debts get out of control and thankfully there are many debt solutions for different situations,” said Mr Porter, who works for the Debt Counsellors.
His comments come in response to a survey by the Association of Investment Trust Companies (AITC) which found that 55 per cent of 16 to 19-year-olds and 45 per cent of parents are worried about finances.
With so many people facing mounting debt problems, Mr Porter urged anyone with debt problems to seek debt advice.
