Liverpool churches providing debt advice
We speak to Kevin Peacock, chief executive of St Andrew’s Community Network, a charity set up at St Andrew’s Church, Clubmoor in Liverpool in 2002. The Network runs a number of programmes, including a budgeting courses and a debt advice service. Last year the charity helped 758 people with debt problems through the debt advice service alone. A ‘satellite’ programme run by the charity has also supported volunteers in seven churches in Merseyside to set up debt advice services, as part of the Community Money Advice Network.
