Getting in debt?
Most of us have debts of some sort or another. However research shows us that families with disabled children are more at risk of getting into debt as it costs more to raise a child with additional needs.
We asked parent advisers on our helpline to answer some commonly asked questions around the subject of debt. The pages below give some examples of the help that’s available.
