How do consumer credit and debt issues

affect my life?

Consumer, credit and debt issues can feel like a difficult problem to sort out when you don’t know where to start or where to get help. The stress and pressure of consumer, credit and debt issues can have a serious impact on your health and wellbeing.

If a large chunk of your money is going to paying off bills and debt and you aren’t left with much
for everyday expenses, it can make you feel pretty down.

Financial stress can impact your quality of life and it can be harder to access:

healthy food choices

comfortable and safe housing

further education or keeping up with schooling

the doctor or health service

a good deal on your electricity and gas supply

friends, family and community

the shops and places you need to go

sports or the gym
