Debt Awareness Week
What is Debt Awareness Week?
Launched by StepChange Debt Charity in 2014, Debt Awareness Week (DAW) is aimed at increasing awareness of problem debt, and the advice and solutions available to help.
This year, our focus is on destigmatising debt, and starting a conversation around the issue, particularly for those who may find themselves in need of debt advice for the first time.
We hope this will be an interesting and highly relevant time to run DAW, against the backdrop of the ongoing effects of the pandemic and a sharp increase in the cost of living. Wednesday 23rd March will also be the second anniversary of the first Covid lockdown.
When is Debt Awareness Week 2022?
This year Debt Awareness Week begins on the 21st of March and runs until the 27th.
