The Housing Executive has launched a new DVD for young people warning of the pitfalls of getting into debt.

Keeping up with the latest trends, going out with friends, or simply being tempted by the latest ‘must haves’, more young people are finding it difficult to make ends meet. The draw of loans and credit cards being offered on line and on television means many young people are getting themselves into unnecessary debt, which can get out of control.

It tells the stories of three young people, how easy it was to get into debt and the impact on their lives. The DVD has been uploaded to YouTube:
