An estimated eleven million people have had to borrow to make ends meet during the pandemic, with the biggest increases in debt amongst the poorest households.
People who were previously able to keep their head above water are now in severe difficulty. Others, who had been just staying afloat, now face being overwhelmed by circumstances entirely beyond their control.
This is an urgent problem that demands a solution. It is not right that those with the fewest resources should bear the heaviest burden of the lockdown, potentially for years to come.
Now is the time for a solution to be found.
We believe people swept into debt by Covid-19 now need a Jubilee. It’s time to #ResetTheDebt.
