Among the fastest growing businesses in our area are pay day lenders, with several opening on Dartmouth Road and also Sydenham High Street.
These legal loan sharks are not offering a helping hand to those in difficulty but preying on good, honest, hardworking people who are struggling to make ends meet as the cost of living keeps going up and up. Take a look at this report published today by Shelter
With 80% of these loans for just putting food on the table or keeping a roof over their heads, we know people are borrowing for everyday essentials, not luxuries.
As your Labour Council candidates in Forest Hill we want to work with the local community against these pay day lenders and promote the work of our local Credit Union.
This is an open meeting and we want as many local residents to attend this event, feel free to bring along neighbours, family and friends who may be interested in this campaign. Please feel free to forward this email onto people.
