We know that January can be a particularly stressful time when you are struggling to manage your money. Fortunately, Debt Awareness Week, in association with StepChange Debt Charity, returns this month (18-24 Jan).

Debt Awareness Week aims to help those who are dealing with debt to acknowledge and tackle the problem.

7 days, 7 ways to tackle debt

Right now, millions of people in the UK need urgent debt advice, but many don’t know where to start.

So, as part of Debt Awareness Week, StepChange has come up with the 7 Days, 7 Ways email campaign to help those who are dealing with debt take control of their finances.

Over the course of seven days, StepChange will send you free, bite-sized support and advice to help you identify the financial challenges that might come up, and allow you to confront your debt with confidence.

The emails include things like:

  • Understanding exactly what you owe
  • Working out which debts take priority
  • How to formulate a long-term action plan

You can sign up to receive the seven handy emails by visiting the Step Change website.
