Doncaster families struggling financially more than ever before

As Citizen's Advice marks it's 80th year - the Doncaster branch says more people than ever before are struggling to manage their debts.

It comes as new figures reveal almost 16 thousand 8 hundred people in the borough are claiming Universal Credit.

Chief Executive, Karen Bothamley, says 'it's difficult to meet demand'.

The Department for Work and Pensions says the new benefits system is 'simpler, more flexible and is helping people into work quicker' than the old one.
