The European Consumer Debt Network (ECDN) is a European level civil society network built on the experiences and activities of key actors in the fight against over-indebtedness and financial exclusion – consisting of 41 debt advice services as well as consumer rights organisations, educational organisations, consumer agencies and research institutes from 18 European countries. ECDN represent our members – and you as a citizens – on the European policy level. We are in close contact with various European stakeholders in order to advance our member’s interests both on a national and international level. Our members help over-indebted households to resolve their debts and restore their financial balance through coaching, advice, debt prevention and negotiations between the over-indebted household and the household’s creditors. Our members promote financial health and help maintain the stability of our economy.
ECDN work – among other things – to develop our member’s potential, both in their interaction with over-indebted households and as organizations of dedicated professionals. Our network provides a platform for capacity development and the exchange of knowledge and it creates a framework for cooperating with other stakeholders in order to support the day-to-day work of the debt relief professionals.
