Improving our financial health can help us adapt to life changes such as the loss of a job or birth of child.

Money problems and debt can happen to anyone, but there are steps we can take to get out of debt. There is nothing wrong with asking for help to sort out debt and it’s always better to act early to stop it getting out of hand.
