Preventing Shocking Debt aims to stop people from falling prey to loan sharks and other high-cost lenders, by helping them access appropriate advice and affordable alternatives.

This is especially important when they are experiencing financial shocks associated with Covid-19 and challenging life events such as the death of a loved one, a new baby or a redundancy.

By focusing on these events, the project aims to prevent unsustainable debt, maintain individual wellbeing, strengthen relationships and family life, and promote financial resilience and community inclusion.

Our Preventing Shocking Debt project is funded by the National Lottery Communities Fund.

Our worker Gurj is currently researching how people got into problem debt and working with a team of artist and graphic designers to see how we could get the right information to people at the right time to prevent shocking debt.
