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
