Recent media coverage

In print and online media, we released our second round of YouGov cost of living polling to coincide with the autumn marketing campaign, which revealed that 2 in 5 people felt uncomfortable discussing their finances with either their lender or landlord, a story covered widely in print in the Daily Express, The Independent, The I Paper, and online in The Evening Standard, The Independent, and LBC News. Director of External Affairs, Richard Lane, was quoted as part of a Creditspring press release which revealed that 59% of disabled people feel financially unstable as a result of the increase in cost of living. Richard’s comments were picked up by The Independent, The Evening Standard, The Herald (Glasgow), and various other national outlets.

In broadcast media, StepChange was mentioned as a source of advice on BBC Radio 5 Live, in a discussion about a former client who came to us for support.

On social media and on our website, we introduced our new branding externally and shared a short video of our client Steve which reached over 1,400 views on Facebook.
