Our latest media coverage

Please note, we're not responsible for the content of external websites.

Friday 9 July

Yesterday, MPs from across Parliament took part in an important debate on the effect the Covid-19 pandemic has had on household debt, discussing many of the issues we’ve recently been campaigning on such as rental evictions, the universal credit uplift and bailiff reform. We highlighted some of the key contributions from MPs such as Paul Maynard and Yvonne Fovargue on our Twitter account.

Off the back of yesterday’s parliamentary debate, StepChange statistics on the scale of debt in the country were mentioned on BBC Radio 4’s news bulletins (BBC Radio 4).

Our campaign for greater support for renters as the eviction ban ends continues to be mentioned in the print editions of locals newspapers (Hartlepool Mail, Sunderland Echo).

Single-mum explains how she saved £8,500 in six months by ditching Tesco, cutting bills and buying Poundland make-up ( The Sun + Scottish Sun).

Sefton Council reports best performing Council Tax collection rate (Q Local – Southport).

We continue to be mentioned as a source of advice during radio discussions about debt (talkSport, talkRadio)

Friday 2 July

Over last weekend, a client of ours, Darren, appeared on Radio 4’s Moneybox this weekend as part of a piece looking at the changes to DROs this week. Darren discussed his experiences of living with debt and with creditors chasing him, as well as his experience getting help. (BBC Radio 4, starts at 16 mins 20 secs, please be aware Darren’s story contains discussion of sensitive topics such as suicide)

On Tuesday this week, we responded to the latest Bank of England credit data, alongside releasing our own latest findings about our clients. With Peter Tutton warning that the data masked serious debt problems, and that public policy would need to continue to focusing on supporting those affected.

Oir comments were published across a number of different outlets including Sky News, The Guardian, CCR Magazine, Credit Connect.

Yesterday we warmly welcomed the appointment of our new trustee, Yvonne MacDermid, who was formerly the Chief Exec of Money Advice Scotland, receiving coverage in the trade press as included in today’s summary below.

And today the new issue of Credit Strategy’s digital magazine, featuring CEO Phil Andrew’s latest column, becomes available via their digital and print edition magazines. In it Phil explains what we are learning from disproportionate effects of debt on certain groups during the pandemic, and why in the light of this a strong safety net is important (Credit Strategy - £)
