An animation about our omni channel journey

StepChange your way is flexible free debt advice that allows you to seamlessly switch between our online and telephone advice channels. So how does it work? We'll start by asking you some quick questions to understand how best we can support you. We'll capture the details of your debts and help you to create a realistic, sustainable budget by understanding how much you may be able to afford to repay towards your debts.

During the debt advice process, you can easily switch between channels, take a break and continue once you're ready. And online service is available to all seven so you can use it at a time that suits you.

When the debt advice process is complete, we'll recommend a suitable way forward for you, whether that's a debt solution or an alternative option based on your individual needs.

We'll support you through the solution set up process and provide you with the guidance you need to get your solution set up and ready to go.
