Let's start the conversation about debt

Help us start the conversation and break the stigma by supporting our new campaign

What's it about?

For so many, debt is a constant concern. But while people often think about it and worry about it, it’s rare that people talk openly about debt.

Launching on 2 November, our new campaign aims to start a national conversation about debt that everyone can join in with – those struggling, those who can help, and those with the profile and voice to raise awareness. We want your customers to know they’re not alone and that judgement-free advice and solutions are available. 

How can I get involved?

Throughout autumn and winter we’re encouraging partner organisations to show their support for the campaign both internally and on external social media channels. Our digital supporter toolkit contains everything you need to help us start the conversation about debt.
