For over 20 years, we have been helping people in financial difficulty to become debt free. As we implement our three-year strategy, we aim to transform the futures of even more people in our society who are in, or at risk of, problem debt. With the support of our partners and stakeholders, we can make a difference to so many lives.
We want to create a society free from problem debt.
Problem debt is not just an issue for individuals. It damages families and communities, and leads to wider social costs in excess of £8 billion each year.
By assisting individuals in debt, getting them back on their feet, and by campaigning for policies that aim to prevent problem debt, we will help to overcome the difficulties that debt creates for our society in the 21st century.
As the UK’s largest debt charity, with over 1,200 staff and with offices in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, we are at the forefront of providing advice and solutions. Our core objectives are to:
- provide and create greater awareness of free debt advice and solutions
- champion the cause of people who are in, or at risk of, problem debt by influencing public and private policymakers and campaigning for change
- enhance people's financial understanding and capability so that they can better manage their money and debts, and recover from problem debt
