Sinn Féin’s Gearóid Ó hEára has encouraged anyone experiencing financial difficulties to seek independent expert help as soon as possible.
The Sinn Féin candidate in the upcoming Westminster election said: “January can be very stressful time for many people who are experiencing financial difficulties.
“At times the pressure can seem very great and can extend to all aspects of a person’s life.”
“But no matter how great the pressure, there is always help available.
“I would encourage anyone struggling with debt or other financial pressures to seek help before the problems get too immense.
“There area a range of services available at community level providing free expert independent financial advice to those in need.
“Locally, Dove House and the Citizens Advice Bureau are among the groups which offer an excellent range of advice services for those dealing with debt at a number of venues across the city.”
