Debt advice sought by more women than men find charities

More women ask for debt advice than men. Women suffering through debt are more likely to ask for help than men. Debt advice is sought by more women than men, according to figures revealed by two debt specialist charities. Both Christians against Poverty (CAP) and the Consumer Credit Counselling Service (CCCS) found that a greater number of women had called them for assistance in 2010 than in previous years. However, men were found to have greater levels of debt than women with more males entering into bankruptcy or looking for official debt repayment agreements over the last ten years.
