Jubilee Debt Campaign

Jubilee Debt Campaign is a UK charity working to end poverty caused by unjust debt and build a finance system that works for everyone.

Founded 1996

  • Mission statement

    Our work is inspired by the ancient concept of the Jubilee, a time when debts were cancelled, slaves freed, and land and wealth redistributed, bringing about greater fairness and equality in the economy and society. We believe that tackling the injustices resulting from the accumulation of debt is a necessary step towards a world in which our common resources are used to realise equality, justice and human dignity.

    We research global debt issues, educate people about their causes and solutions, campaign in solidarity with indebted people and countries, and work in partnership with allies in the UK and around the world to strengthen the rules that govern banks and financial institutions.
