The credit crunch means that an increasing number of Britons feel more comfortable talking about debt and money issues, according to new research by Credit Expert.

Apparently over half us us are now willing to talk about money and debt issues compared to this time last year, in order to either get debt advice or share debt information with friends or family who are in a similar situation with their debts and financial issues.

Director of credit Darryl Bowman commented: “It’s good to see people reacting positively and talking about their finances with those closest to them.”
