Money's too tight to mention?

We’re coming up to two years of campaigning for borrowers’ rights here on Zero-credit. From the outset, we have been blocked and ignored by all sorts of people, who thought we were out for what we could get, but we’re a voice that cannot be ignored.

More and more people are waking up to the idiocy of becoming a victim of their own circumstances when they suffer financial difficulty in silence. Money’s too tight to mention? Pah!

Shark infested waters await anyone who has no idea of where to go for reliable money advice and the less money you have, the worse it gets. That’s why so many people end up in unimaginable financial difficulties – they make do and mend with shoddy lending and impossible debt advice until insolvency is the only option. 

My goodness, where should we all be if £1453 billion ended up in default?

With so many people navigating shorter hours, unemployment or benefit changes, no matter what your politics, few of us can afford what we used to afford, so the only sensible thing is to band together as one voice. 

Zero-credit is that voice and right now, it’s shouting loud and clear: Borrowers have rights!

Since incorporation last August, we have worked long and hard on our Articles of Association and  Membership & Subscription terms so that joining Zero-credit can be as much or as little as you want it to be. 

Individuals pay £1 a year to join as Members, with full voting rights and all of the opportunities to work with, for and manage the company that this entails. As co-owners of our company, our Members shape our every move.

They also enjoy a free “Sustainable Spending” e-book and monthly Newsletter with an increasing number of creditfree tips, events and offers that don’t ask you to bogof or pay up front with the lure of cashback! 

When the pound in your pocket is worth a bob or two, we want yours to work as hard as it can, so come join us and start living, creditfree!
