Debt Awareness Week 2016: FAQs

Some of the frequently asked questions about Debt Awareness Week. If you can't find an answer to your question below, get in touch with our partnerships team so they can help.

What is 7 Days, 7 Ways to deal with debt?

Dealing with debt can be daunting, but our simple 7 Days, 7 Ways to deal with debt email programme helps people to take control of their finances. Written by our expert debt advisors, our programme is the perfect starting point in helping people to deal with debt. Each day for a week, we will send through an email linking to practical advice that will help them to figure out what they owe, which payments are priorities, and help them to put together a long-term action plan.

What is mindfulness?

In a nutshell, ‘Mindfulness’ is paying attention (or being mindful) of the present moment, without getting stuck in the past or worrying about the future. It's a simple method that can really change the way you manage and react to stressful everyday situations, and help you to stay mentally healthy. The other great thing about mindfulness is that you can do it for 5 minutes or 5 hours, and tailor it to suit your own needs and lifestyles.

How do mindfulness and debt advice work together?

We have refreshed our 7 Days, 7 Ways programme to now include mindfulness tips from the Mental Health Foundation to help people deal with their debt and take care of their mental health and wellbeing at the same time.

When can I order my materials?

Campaign materials are available to order now through a number of channels including your Relationship Manager/Business Development Manager or our resource centre.

Where can I use the materials?

The toolkit has been designed to be used across a number of audiences and we are leaving it entirely up to you on how you use them. As a starter for ten, most organisations use the materials around their offices or to engage their clients/customers.The digital toolkit is also free to download and the assets can be used across your intranet or consumer facing websites.

Do the materials have a shelf life?

No, we haven't dated any of the materials, but we do ask that you have them up in January 2016 to ensure we create as much awareness of free debt advice as possible.

When will I receive my toolkits?

Because the campaign isn't until January, you will receive your toolkits the week commencing 7th December.
