Debt Doctors Foundation UK (DD-UK) is a debt education, information and advice charity working for the prevention of debt and for better lives for individuals (and their families) affected by debt. You only have to read the paper or listen to the news to realise that debt is one of the biggest problems facing the UK society today – people are in need of financial guidance and emotional support more than ever before.
DD-UK’s main aim is to make a significant impact on the UK public at large by offering and promoting good and accessible financial education and also, by offering practical and realistic support to those already affected by debt.
We differ from other similar charities in that the prevention of debt is at the very top of our agenda – we are looking to tackle this problem from the roots by encouraging essential money management skills and promoting the dangers of getting into debt.
DDUK is a happy family of busy people
