Debt Awareness Week 2023: How Can We Help?

Posted on: 20 Mar 23

We are proud to support Debt Awareness Week this March, taking place during the week of Monday 20th through to Sunday 26th.

Step Change Debt Charity’s annual Debt Awareness Week helps to raise awareness about the help and support available to people wanting to become debt free. During the week, Step Change provides tips, advice and guidance for individuals experiencing financial concerns, money worries, and debt anxiety.

The charity has more than 30 years’ experience of helping people to find ways to manage their finances and reduce their debt. In 2022, Step Change helped more than 25,500 clients to become debt free.

Step Change

Step Change has an online debt advice tool to help you if you have any money concerns. Simply tell them about your situation and they will give you practical advice for free on dealing with your financial worries.

Sometimes, the hardest step is the first one. Start by opening up about your financial situation and the help you need by contacting Step Change and accessing their debt advice and help during Debt Awareness Week.
