A pop-up 'Cred & Breakfast' offering access to money and mortgage advice is being held this-morning at The Breakfast Club in Spitalfields Market.
It’s aim is to help millennials, those born in the 1990s, get on the property ladder.
Anyone turning up gets a free breakfast while also being served up financial information to increase their chances of owning a home.
It is being served up by Noddle, part of the Callcredit Group credit report and score service.
“There’s a lot of pessimism around millennials’ chances,” Noddle’s Jacqueline Dewey said. “But we want to challenge this notion and help young people own their own home.”
Millennials struggle to get on the ladder compared to previous generations, with only one-in-three managing it by their late-20s. That compares to half the so-called ‘Generation X’ buying their own home and six-out-of-10 of the post-War baby boomers.
The ‘Cred & Breakfast’ runs till 11.30am with three sessions, the last beginning 10.30am.
