How severe is the UK’s serious personal debt problem, and what can we do about it?

Refreshments at the event.


We set out the challenges faced by families facing crippling debt where money is already hard to come by. Serious personal debt is too often overlooked in the poverty debate. We will discuss what we can do to help low income families climb out of debt and protect them from predatory loan sharks. This event will set out a plan for a new Conservative government to ensure we tackle serious personal debt and pull the plug on lending practices plunging low income families even further into poverty.

Getting the UK retirement ready in the age of auto-enrolment and pension freedoms

Meanwhile, some responsibilities previously managed by employers now fall on individuals. How can we help them make the most of these new opportunities?
