The UK Insolvency Helpline was established in the spring of 1997 with the remit to look at meeting a long-standing need for debt and credit advice. Its creation followed a recommendation of a national group of Insolvency Lawyers and Accountants which had been examining the effects of huge influx of unregulated debt counsellors and debt management companies that had began trading in the last decade.

The UK Insolvency Helpline is the largest professional network of lawyers and accountants specialising in money advice in the UK. The UK Insolvency Helpline exists to promote the provision of independent money advice from the UK's regulated professional bodies. The UK Insolvency Helpline works with its professional network to raise standards in professional money advice for the benefit of customers in financial hardship.
