The ECDN is built on the experiences, expertise and activities of key actors within the fields of debt counseling and debt. The ECDN has 41 members, all working together to fight over-indebtedness and financial exclusion. The members consist of debt advice service organisations, consumer rights organisations, educational organisations, consumer agencies, and research institutes from 18 European countries. 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. The members promote financial health and help maintain the stability of our economy. However, each actor cannot fight over-indebtedness and financial exclusion on their own. To do so, we must work together to create visible changes on the European Policy level, which is the purpose of the ECDN.
