• Conor to hold debt advice surgery on Friday 10th February 5pm

    CAB

    The first couple of months of the New Year can be a tough time for many people as they try to get their finances in order after Christmas.

    That’s why Conor McGinn MP has teamed up with St Helens Citizens AdviceBureau to encourage people to get advice on dealing with their debts.

    The St Helens North MP will hold a joint advice surgery with the CAB at his St Helens constituency office on Friday 10th February at 5pm.

    Conor McGinn said: “Post-Christmas is a stressful time for many people who are struggling with their debts.

    “More and more people every year have trouble making ends meet and covering the most essential household bills.

    “Money troubles don’t go away by themselves. So, if you’re getting into difficultly, act quickly and seek advice about how to deal with it. St Helens CAB is there to provide advice and support and our joint surgery will give people a chance to get help and advice.”

    Karl Pearce, chief executive of Citizens Advice St Helens said: “Demand for money and debt advice is highest in January and February, with one person contacting their nearest Citizens Advice for help every 11 seconds and people visiting our website every 3 seconds in January.”

    “Although debt worries can be more acute in January and February, people also need to take stock of their finances and thinking about the future. It doesn’t matter what your earn – whether you are on minimum wage or have a comfortable salary – everyone can benefit from reviewing their finances.”
