Hard-up Brits with mental health issues will be able to get unlimited time to pay back debts

30 October 2018

People with serious debt who are under the care of NHS mental health crisis teams will not have further interest and charges added to their debts for the duration of their care, under new government plans.

Yesterday, in the Budget the Chancellor announced that anyone in serious debt will get a period of 60 days, up from the six weeks that had been previously suggested.
