“Giving people the opportunity to have access to fair and affordable lending has the potential to really make a positive difference to their health.
It can reduce social isolation and anxiety, and help people feel empowered and resilient. It isn’t right and it isn’t fair that people least able to afford high borrowing costs who are forced to pay them.
Fair lending frees up income for essentials as well as things like days out for families, which really impacts people’s mental well-being.”
