For lots of people, the New Year period brings further challenges and worries. That’s why Shelter are urging anyone worried about paying their rent or mortgage to make seeking early housing advice their New Year’s resolution.
Shelter’s helpline receives too many calls from people in desperation, and on the brink of losing their home, because bills and notices have been left unopened and problems have piled up.
Shelter know that one in eleven people fear they won’t be able to afford to pay the rent or mortgage at the end of this month. Yet many people in this situation would feel too ashamed to ask for help.
This January Shelter are encouraging those at risk to seek advice from Shelter and avoid problems spiralling out of control.
