Each January we ask our partner organisations to promote free debt advice by running their own Debt Awareness Week. It’s a chance to share the message that nobody needs to deal with debts on their own and free and impartial advice is available.
We started running Debt Awareness Week because we know that millions of people are struggling with debt. Many of them aren’t aware that we can help them take control of their finances.
Debt Awareness Week 2016
This year we helped partner organisations run a variety of Debt Awareness Weeks throughout January. Over 400 partner organisations carried out a week of activity to promote free debt advice.
We also ran a DebtDay event on 18 January 2016 which opened the doors of the charity to see behind the scenes on one our busiest days of the year. We made hourly updates on the amount of debt reported to us, posted stories from the front line of debt advice, held debt advice clinics online and lots more.
