We're lifting the lid on the damaging impact that debt has on children with our Debt Trap campaign.
We know it’s become a daily battle for families to pay the bills, meet the mortgage or rent payments, and find money for food or other basics. One setback or even a simple mistake can lead to a spiral of debt.
As part of our Debt Trap campaign we’ve urged the Government to ban pre-watershed payday loan adverts. Our supporters lobbied the House of Lords over 17,000 times and the Government listened. They’ve asked the advertising watchdog to immediately investigate curbing payday loan advertising to protect children.
When it comes to debt, we’re on the side of children and our campaign to end the Debt Trap continues. We’ll keep campaigning to end the damage debt does to children.
