As the UK’s largest specialist provider of free and independent debt advice we speak up for all who are affected by problem debt, right across society.

We provide briefings for MPs, peers and MSPs, work with the All Party Parliamentary Group on Debt and Personal Finance, and lobby government on our evidence-led campaigns. We also provide practical resources so MPs can work with us to make a real difference to constituents’ lives.
