Our brand new advert

posted by in Budgeting

We’ve started the New Year with a bang after the premiere of our new advert on New Year’s Day. Did you know that millions of people in the UK suffer sleep loss due to worrying about their debt?

Thousands are able to get a good night’s sleep after talking to us. If you’re struggling to get the rest you need because of your debts, we’re here to advise you every step of the way.

Please help us spread the word. Post the advert on your Facebook page, tweet about it or email to a friend. We want to spread our message far and wide, but we can only do it with your help.

Let’s put problem debt to bed for good.

At StepChange Debt Charity we want you to be free of debt and save money.

    I think the advert is spot on. Now all we need is a good few years of generally good wage increases and we can all sleep even better. Keep up the good work Stepchange.


    What an outstanding advert lets hope more people make contact with you and get the help and advice that you’ve given me

  • Joanna Quaye

    I can now enjoy life more knowing that my debt r being sirted bt stepchange. I no longer have to worry which durdct debits are gone and whuch knes havent. Paying one large sum has helped me a lot to concentrate on my household expenses without much disruption like i use to have

    Great advert, from an absolutely superb organisation. Let’s hope that it gets people away from those awful debt management companies that prey on the vulnerable, and skim off the top of their monthly payments.

    I’m only a few months into my plan, but the difference it has made to my happiness and general outlook on life is immeasurable. I can see an end to living and working only to service my debts, and every month I can see my outstanding balance getting smaller and smaller. Thank you so much StepChange for everything you’ve done and continue to do for me and countless others…

      I really enjoyed the advert. I too am only a few months into a debt management plan but the relief that it has brought is unbelievable. I am no ,longer sticking my head in the sand and dreading the phone ringing or the next letter through the door. I only wish I had contacted your great advisers sooner and perhaps I wouldn’t have so many wrinkles! Don’t be an ostrich ring Step Change

    We first contacted stepchange in November last year. Now everything is set up and running ( we are in a debt management plan) and eveything is so , so much better. Everybody dealt with has been fantastic and we cannot thank them enough. Please if you need help contact these people right away. We spent 18 months being pig headed prior to contacting them and wish we had done it much sooner. Again , thank you so much for your help.

  • These people are literally life savers when you have hit rock bottom and you cant see a way out of the big dark rain cloud these people are there for you!! They were actually recommend to me by one of my creditors who i had a large debt with and its the best thing i did for both me and my children they are a free service and i would recommend anyone out there with debt problems which are effecting you as a person to call them you will soon see it will be the most worthwhile call you have ever made!

    Advert is just spot on……….. as I now get a good nights sleep after getting to the confidence to call Step Change. Call them as it has changed my life and the best thing I did for myself and my daughter. I was left in an major financial mess by my ex partner and like ever one tried to ignore it, but don’t ignore the problem take the plunge in 2013 and call step change, as they truly have helped me put my life back on track :0

  • carole

    thanks when my husband passed away i got a lower income and the help and advice you are giving me is ok now at least i can cope thank you

  • Ginny

    Great advert, you have helped us sleep better and your staff are lovely.

  • Alison

    You have made things very much easier to deal with. My debt is gradually reducing and may be resolved very soon. I took a long time to face up to my situation, and Am so glad I called you. Yes…I am sleeping better

  • MP

    This is a brilliant advert, just the right tone, not patronising and a credit to the general ethos of Step Change. I cannot thank Step Change enough for the guidance, support and expert advice I have continually received throughout a very hard time made worse by illness. Thank you so much Step Change!

  • Malcolm Johnson

    The ADVERT is absolutely ‘spot on’ ….. it is a VERY HONEST ADVERT….in the sense that it just says what you are offering and does not ‘flower it up’ ……. ‘stepChange’ (previously C.C.C.S) became my ‘saviours’ more than 5 years ago…… You are an organisation thatn ‘needs alot more recognition’ especially as you are Charity…for all that you have done for me and thousands of others that have ‘found themselves in a corner’ …Thank You

  • Stephanie

    Well done on the advert. So true to every word, it wasn’t until I spoke to StepChange that I started sleeping again. Brilliant work…

  • Lyn Carter

    Yes, it is a good advert but I don’t think that a good night’s sleep is the best way to advertise your so very excellant service. A good night’s sleep is not always the result of contacting you. But a very honest approach by your staff goes a long way to easing tension, worry, stress and fear. Your adviser who said to me about a less than sympathetic creditor, ‘send them a nasty letter, they’ve sent enough to you!’, made me laugh and put things in perspectiive, made me realise that creditors are often bulies who excessivley prey on you when you are at your most vulnerable. Your advisors are completely non judgemental and are not interested in why you are in debt crisis. I suspect that most people using debt management plans are not irresponsible or feckless but come up against genuinely difficult life changing situations. I know I did when my husband died after many years of illness and disability. The financial world can work against you when you have a chronic illness, no life cover so no insurance for the mortgage etc. Stepchange has helped me find my way back to being in control of a life that spun so violently out of control. I still have a few years to go and more battles to fight. But there is a light, there always is with the right help.

  • Alan mathieson

    I can’t remember who told me to contact step change, I am so grateful for what they have done for me and my family, without them I would be lost. the light at the end of the long tunnel is getting lighter. thank you team.

  • I enjoyed the advert and only wish I had known about Step Change sooner perhaps I would have slept better for longer.
    Most of us in debt crisis are not there through any fault of our own and talking to the to Step Change advisers have made life so much easier. Now when I get the awful phone calls that threaten to ruin my weekend I know who to call for advice and support. Thanks Step Change there is light at the end of the tunnel!

  • Chris

    It is a great advertisement, and rings true for those of us who have been fortunate enough to take advantage of the services offered by Step Change. It is very difficult to explain just how much better life has become as a result of following the debt plan prepared by your staff. There have been times when suicide was seriously contemplated as a way out of the extreme stress which uncontrolled debts have caused. Thanks to your help and support, I for one,(and I know of others), am able to look forward with hope, to an eventual debt free way of life.To the staff of Step Change I say, with hand on heart, thank you for your help, compassion and realism – you have been a real life saver.
    God bless you all in your work.
