Become a media volunteer
One of the best ways to raise awareness about problem debt is to show how people are affected. By sharing your experience of being in debt, you can help encourage more people to contact us for help.
Your personal experience can help others understand what it’s like to deal with debt, and why getting our help is important. By listening to real life stories, you can help people to realise they’re not alone, and that help is available.
Media volunteers are vital to our work. We regularly get requests from journalists looking to speak to people who know what it’s like to live with debt, or ask for testimonials from our clients.
What does a media volunteer do?
Media volunteers are interviewed by us or by journalists about their experiences, for
- Magazines and newspapers
- TV and news broadcasts
- Case study videos used on our website and social media
If you’d rather not talk directly to the media, you can share your story with us in an interview we can film. We’ll give you the opportunity to tell your story and film at a pace that suits you, on a day that’s convenient for you.
We’ll give you the option to choose where you’d be willing to share your story.
