26 charities work together to create a debt free London.
London is one of the world’s most expensive cities to live in and work. There are over 1.3 million adults who are struggling to make ends meet across the city, and being in debt is a growing problem.
Debt Free London, previously known as Capitalise, are keen to help as many people in debt in London as possible. So far, their expert advisers have supported over 250,000 Londoners.
In the last year, Debt Free London’s advisers have seen a sharp rise in the number of people going to it for help with ‘priority’ debts such as council tax and rent arrears.
A third of people supported by the charity partnership, which is made up of 26 debt charities, are behind on their council tax. Debt Free London can also help with ‘non-priority’ debts including credit and store-cards.
