Debt Club Toolkit
Welcome to the Debt Club toolkit. Debt Club is an open access resource with no membership requirement, and it is completely free. It's been developed to provide friends, family, partners, colleagues & neighbours a toolkit to help people they may know that are struggling with debt problems.
We've developed some helpful fact sheets and the 10 Rules of Debt Club to create an easy access toolkit.
You can navigate the Debt Club Toolkit below, or download the full Debt Club Resources from our shared Google Drive Folder, if you don't have a Google account, click the link, then just go to the top right hand corner & select download , a zip file will download for you.
Don't worry, you do not need to have been in debt, or even need to be a debt expert to help. The aim of the toolkit is to help you recognise tell-tale signs of people with problem debt, and take a sensitive, but proactive approach to helping them.
In 2016, the Money Advice Service published research on the UK indebted population. Their study showed that 1 in 6 adults in the UK was at risk of crisis debt, yet only 20% seek help. In July 2017, the Money Advice Service issued a press release to encourage friends and family to look out for signs and symptoms of debt. We thought this was a great campaign and wanted to build on the concept by creating this toolkit.
