CITIZENS Advice is braced for the busiest time of the year for debt advice, with its base in West Oxfordshire expecting over 150 people to seek advice for debt concerns in January.

Analysis of national data reveals that on a single day - 29 January 2019 - Citizens Advice offices helped 2,776 people nationwide.

Teresa Archer, chief officer of Citizens Advice West Oxfordshire, said: “We know that dealing with debt can be hugely stressful and that Christmas is often an additional burden for anyone already in financial difficulty.”
