Debt prob­lem blights Ar­gyll

The Oban Times - - NEWS -

AL­MOST 10 per cent of peo­ple from Ar­gyll and Bute who con­tacted debt char­ity StepChange last year had taken out an ‘un­fair’ pay­day loan.

StepChange, the UK’s largest debt ad­vice char­ity, found that reg­u­la­tions had ‘not fixed’ the pay­day lend­ing mar­ket, with some loan providers still not en­gag­ing in best prac­tice.

Any­one strug­gling with debt, due to a pay­day loan or other­wise, can con­tact StepChange for free and in­de­pen­dent ad­vice.
