HOW CAN YOU HELP

Our work makes a real difference to lower income households. We were leaders in the campaign for caps on the costs that payday lenders and rent-to-own firms can charge, which has saved borrowers an estimated £150 million per year since 2015. And our rent-flex project could eliminate the need for social housing tenants to incur any interest at all.

Most recently we have been supporting the We are Debt Advisers campaign from our own revenues.   We therefore welcome donations, of any size, which we can put towards current and future campaigns.
