A new breed of advice seeker

Citizens Advice (CAB) has said they are seeing a big increase in the number of white collar workers seeking advice from them. Its latest figures show a 17 per cent increase in the number of inquiries overall, between April 2015 and the end of January 2016. However, redundancy related queries were up 153 per cent, mortgage and loan inquiries up 49 per cent and debt inquiries were up by 24 per cent, and the CAB chief executive David Harker said the profile of people coming into the offices was changing as there were ‘more richer people coming in than ever before’.
