At Money Advice Scotland, we believe that every voice deserves to be heard. 

Money and debt present challenges many of us face. 

When it comes to talking about money and debt, the language sometimes used includes terms or phrases that perpetuate stigma, prejudice, and judgement. Terms like "debtor," "financially irresponsible," "careless with money". 

Does this sound familiar? If so, we invite you to get involved with our Dignity First campaign by sharing your story. It will not only inspire change, but it will also let others know they are not alone. 

Sharing your insights as someone with lived experience of financial difficulties and debt can be used to make positive change in the language we, as a society, use on the subject. 


Your voice is a powerful force in challenging stigma and building a society that supports everyone on their financial journey.
