Partner resources

Our partner organisations have a key role to play in helping customers with problem debt to engage with debt advice early, to reduce the harm that it causes. If they don't seek advice, we estimate that a person’s debt can increase by an average of £2,300 in just six months if charges and interest continue to be added.

Help your customers and reduce the harm caused by debt

Our research suggests that many people put off getting debt advice for more than a year because of the shame and anxiety they feel, or because they simply don’t realise that help is available. Because of this, we don’t just work to create better awareness of free debt advice; we also share our knowledge about its causes. 

Use our tools and resources to encourage your customers to take action and help them get their finances back on track.

We’ve developed two unique tools designed to engage people at different stages of the journey to debt advice. Use them to help your customers face up to, take steps to deal with, and manage their debts. 

Using Debt Remedy

Debt Remedy is our unique debt advice tool that’s available 24/7 on our website.

It gives customers confidential and personalised debt advice and the same recommendation that they’d receive from us over the phone.

It only takes about 20 minutes and delivers clients with a tailored action plan to help them deal with their debts.
