Avoid getting into unnecessary debt - new DVD produced for young people
We have launched a new DVD for young people warning of the pitfalls of getting into debt.
Keeping up with the latest trends, going out with friends, or simply being tempted by the latest ‘must haves’, more young people are finding it difficult to make ends meet. The draw of loans and credit cards being offered on line and on television means many young people are getting themselves into unnecessary debt, which can get out of control.
The DVD, produced in partnership with the Northern Ireland Youth Forum, is aimed at those who are under 25 years old.
It tells the stories of three young people, how easy it was to get into debt and the impact on their lives. It gives simple advice on what to do – don’t ignore the problem, and where to seek help.
The DVD has been uploaded to YouTube :
Copies of the DVD are also available from stephen.anderson@nihe.gov.uk
