Crosslight Advice is an independent, community-focused charity working to alleviate poverty caused by problem debt and lack of financial capability.

We have a vision to restore dignity and hope to those in need by reducing debt-poverty and improving financial capability through the provision of free face-to-face advice, money education, and ongoing support. Our heart is to meet people at their point of need and support them through to full restoration, however long that takes.


Our five core values: 

  • To help anyone

  • To show unconditional love

  • To act without judgement

  • To be open, honest, and fair

  • To empower our clients

“The amount that the team went out of their way to help me was amazing. Thank you, you’ve completely changed my life!”

Advise: We provide a full-service, individual, face-to-face, debt advice service. This includes comprehensive casework support for the most vulnerable, acting as their advocate, and intermediating with third parties on their behalf if necessary.  

Equip: We provide money education and resources on budgeting and practical day-to-day money management through a comprehensive programme of workshops, classes and one-to-one practical mentoring. 

Encourage: We seek to go beyond advice and will support clients throughout their journey by providing ongoing mentoring, guidance, and referrals to help clients address the causes of their difficulties.
