Help us make this Debt Awareness Week the biggest ever


In the current uncertain economic climate, awareness of free and impartial debt advice matters more than ever. As a valued partner of StepChange Debt Charity, we would love your organisation to support Debt Awareness Week 2021.

What's it about?

First launched in 2014, Debt Awareness Week is our annual campaign to open up the conversation around debt and encourage people who need help or advice to seek it out.

Whether your customer needs free advice about their debt problem, wants some support with tackling a persistent debt, or is worried about the impact of coronavirus on their finances; we want them to know that free help is available - they just have to take #TheFirstStep

We'll be highlighting some of the barriers your customers might face, such as feeling embarrassed about their debts or not knowing how to open up to their friends, family or creditors about their situation. We'll also look at how they can overcome these barriers and get help to start resolving their debt problem. 

When is it happening?

The campaign runs from 22-28 March 2021 and we'll be highlighting our messages across our website, email, social media and through Partnership activity.
