I’m no stranger to financial troubles. As a young, single parent, I found myself in a good amount of debt, and totally understand how easy it is for money issues to spiral out of control. Fortunately pay day loans weren’t so prevalent 15 years ago, or I could have ended up in a proper pickle.
Luckily, payday loans aren’t the only option if you need money urgently. You might be able to get a budgeting loan, hardship payment, short term benefit advance, or even a grant. Single parent charity Gingerbread has put together this really handy video, to tell you all about your options, whether you need help with paying the rent, utility bills, or for a one-off purchase.
Please do share this video with any friends you think may be in need of help or support.
