Tackling Cambridge’s growing debt crisis

What can we learn from the people advising on debt, poverty & addiction?

We campaign against harmful gaps between rich & poor.

Our research shows the impact of wealth gaps in Cambridge:

• unaffordable housing

• rising hunger

• social care cuts bite

• 11 year health gap

We think Cambridge can do better.

We run events and organise community action

We produce research and insight to build awareness

Sector is expecting a big post-Covid debt spike at the tail end of this year and into next year, after the eviction protection is removed, plus end of furlough and removal of the £20 UC top-up - @Sam_in_Cam .. not just 'back to normal' #debt #poverty #inequality #Cambridge

Shame is often a reason people do not come forward sooner until they are facing eviction .. they blame themselves ('It's all my fault') - Jo Scoones on how people fall into #debt and #poverty @CAPuk

It can take some people up to three years to realise they have a problem and to come forward to deal with their debt issues - Jo Scoones of @CAPuk #debt #poverty #inequality #Cambridge
