Life in the Debt Trap: Stories of Children and Families Struggling with Debt

by Sorcha Mahony and Larissa Pople - £9.99  Policy Press (2018)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781447341093 | ISBN 10: 1447341090

What is life like for families who are stuck in problem debt? Why do they fall into a spiral of debt in the first place, and why is it so hard to escape?
The first hand stories in this book offer a unique understanding of life for families and children fighting a daily battle against poverty and debt. They give voice to some of the most underrepresented people in society, who are too often portrayed cruelly in the media and elsewhere.
Drawing on research data collected through The Children’s Society’s Debt Trap campaign, this book explores the causes, implications and impacts of problem debt, challenges pejorative public attitudes and encourages more compassionate policy making to help families escape poverty and debt.
