For my money this can't come quick enough, I work with families the majority are deprived and I can tell you from experience 95% have debts. About half of these have debts between £15,000 and £25,000 despite being lone parents, on benefits and having no collateral. The majority cannot believe how much debt they have when we sit down and work it out. Even the clients who believe they are 'good with money' can't seem to comprehend that having a debt of £800 won't ever be cleared by paying £5.00 per week to the moneylender. We have offered money management classes on several occassions with very little uptake. Educating them in school will hopefully make a difference.
