One in 13 people in Greater London 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.
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.
This January Shelter are encouraging those at risk to seek advice and avoid problems spiralling out of control.
People in Coldharbour can find professional advice via Shelter's online advice and free telephone helpline number - www.shelter.org.uk/advice 0808 800 4444
For lots of people, the New Year period brings further challenges and worries. That’s why we are urging anyone worried about paying their rent or mortgage to make seeking early housing advice their New Year’s resolution.
