It’s time to destigmatize debt! The aim of Debt Awareness Week 2021 run by Step Change Debt Charity, is to get people talking about money and to encourage people to ask for the help they need without fear of judgement, or feeling embarrassed or ashamed.

The truth is that anyone can fall into debt, and it can happen for a variety of reasons. So keep in mind that even if your money worries make you feel lonely, you are not alone.

If you don't feel ready to get debt help, then telling someone about your struggles is the first step to getting things back on track. So let’s get the conversation started, you'll be amazed by the weight that's lifted from your shoulders once you take #TheFirstStep.
