MP in bid to get East End families out of debt
MP Jim Fitzpatrick has joined a campaign to get families out of debt with free financial ‘health checks.’
He is backing the launch of the Government’s new Money Advice Service aimed at improving personal money management.
Many of his Poplar & Limehouse constituents have debt problems to sort when they call in at his weekly surgeries.
“There are families in the East End worried about everyday money and don’t know where to turn,” Jim said at the launch in Parliament.
“This new health check will help make sure people know where to go for help, know their choices and know how to take the steps about their money.”

The Money Advice Service, funded by a financial services industry levy, is an independent organisation giving help over the phone, face-to-face and online.
