Many face the prospect of redundancy and many more are uncertain about the impact of the ongoing financial crisis on their jobs and livelihoods. Even those whose jobs are relatively secure are worried about rising living costs - particularly those on low incomes. Debt is also becoming an increasing problem, with the average household owing £9,500* (excluding a mortgage).
This short guide, compiled by the TUC with the involvement of Citizens Advice, contains practical information about how best to weather the current economic storm. You'll find advice and pointers to further resources on issues such as dealing with redundancy, your rights to join a union and be represented at work, how to make sure you are claiming the right benefits, consumer advice, dealing with debt and support for finding a new job and planning a new career path.
