About Jubilee Debt Campaign

Jubilee Debt Campaign is a UK charity working to end poverty, inequality and exploitation caused by unjust debt. We do this through research, education, and campaigning, based around the principles of solidarity and partnership. We seek to strengthen the global movement for economic justice through everything we do.

Our vision is of a world that is just and sustainable, where everyone has their basic needs met, their human rights respected, and the opportunity to flourish, live a dignified life, and contribute to their community and to society as a whole. This is a world where finance and the banks serve the public interest, and where no-one is exploited, oppressed or driven into poverty by unjust debt.

We have a small, highly-skilled team with an agile, creative and flexible approach, a network of local activists across the UK, a growing community of online activists, and a strong network of allies in the UK and around the world. All of this adds up to a big impact, relative to our size. Key victories in recent years include:

  • $130 billion of debt cancellation for developing countries as part of the Jubilee 2000 campaign
  • An Act of Parliament to protect 40 poor countries from being sued by vulture funds in UK courts
  • $100 million of debt cancellation for Ebola-affected countries: Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea
  • Creation of a new global network to tackle the dangerous new debt-creating mechanism ‘Public Private Partnerships, currently comprising 150 campaigners in 45 countries
