Seek early help for New Year debt problems
I HOPE your readers had a happy Christmas and the New Year will bring peace and prosperity for all in Northern Ireland.
Unfortunately, there will be many who, having overstretched their budgets, will now need to pay for the presents and festivities.
There will be many who cannot make the repayments and will be put under pressure by their lender.
Those who find themselves in this situation should not panic. They should seek professional advice from the many government-funded statutory, or voluntary, agencies that are there to help.
