If we come to Debtors Anonymous with unsecured debt we often feel in chaos and fear around it. It does not matter how much we owe, it is the impact on our lives that is often destructive and damaging.

In this workshop will look at how we chose to communicate with our creditors, the calculation of our repayment schedule and the pace at which we reduce our debt.

We will use handouts and DA literature as well as share our experience strength and hope. In the spirit of our recovery we will affirm our commitment to making amends whilst never neglecting our own self care and needs.

VISIONS- fellowship call Sunday 29 Oct at 5pm

The WSC Fellowship Communications Committee Presents “Visions – Individual” 

DA Members Share Their Experience Strength and Hope

This Fellowship-wide call will explore the many levels in which having a clear vision can contribute to spiritual growth and our individual capacities for abundance. Many of us came into DA in a state of complete helplessness and hopelessness – stuck in a restricted life where we were constantly gasping for breath. Accompanied with the steps and tools of DA, being willing to explore and move toward our visions can result in profound displays of DA’s promises.

Come join us in to hear personal stories of visions realized, and how three members moved from a life of unmanageability to a life of dreams and visions realized. Through recovery, as we align our will with a Power Greater than ourselves, we begin to live our deepest visions, sometimes in unexpected ways, and find freedom, happiness, and serenity, beyond our wildest dreams.

Participants – Worldwide Debtors Anonymous Members at all service levels and especially Newcomers.

PRG for DA on Saturday 7pm

2017 Pressure Relief Meeting  
for Debtors Anonymous
A Fellowship-wide Service Opportunity
The purpose of a pressure relief meeting is to review our financial situation, help restore manageability to our financial lives, and thereby provide support for our recovery from compulsive debting.
Pressure Relief Groups & Pressure Relief Meetings pamphlet


In February 2017, the Chair of the General Service Board convened an ad hoc committee to address the Fellowship’s $48,000.00 projected deficit in our FY 17 spending plan. The members of the ad hoc committee realize this situation is far from ideal.

Debtors Anonymous has recently accessed a portion of our prudent reserve to address the shortfall. Although the Fellowship has not incurred unsecured debt, we realize our current course of spending will not be sustainable.  
To this end, the ad hoc committee is asking for active participation from our Fellowship in a pressure relief-style conference call.

One member, one action for the month of April

Dear DA members,

We are carrying on our tradition of ‘One member, one action’ for the month of April. If every member took just one action, imagine the impact it would have on carrying the DA message to the debtor who still suffer. Could you call a newcomer, sponsor a member or….

  1. Find Materials

DA Posters & awareness cards (business cards with DA info) available from meeting PI rep, Literature rep & Intergroup Literature Rep

OR Poster available to download and print from DA website (you can modify with your meeting details if you wish)

  1. Plan where to go

Start local – near your meeting venue, even a noticeboard at the meeting venue. Other places near your meeting – shops, newsagent, doctor’s surgeries etc. (see list below)

  1. Think about what you’ll say

Keep it short and simple! Have your ‘pitch’ ready – something you’re comfortable with. We found something like this worked well:

“I’m from a local support group that helps people who have debt and problems with money, it’s really helped me and we want to let people know where to find us.”

  1. Go to the venues and ask them

It’s best to ask first – some locations might have a policy about what can be on view in their premises. They may let you know where you can put things up.

Where to spread the word?

Here are some ideas from DA fellows of places we could spread the word – putting up a poster or having a conversation about DA:

  • Other 12 step meeting places
  • Citizens Advice Bureau and Citizens Advice Money worries outreach sessions
  • Church, Synagogue, Mosque, Buddhist centre or other religious centre
  • Library
  • GP surgery/health centre/hospital – waiting rooms or with your GP / health practitioner directly
  • Treatment / rehab centres
  • Court / law firms
  • Debt charities
  • Personal friends
  • Yoga Venues
  • Job Centres
  • Food banks
  • University
  • Community centres
  • Counselling services / therapist waiting rooms
  • Places of work
  • On the bus …

More ideas available on DA website here The fellowship wants to hear from you, if you/your group need help with this or you want to share what your one action email

Thank you for carrying the message.

Sponsorship Pays Well- Call Sat 25 Mar at 6pm

Sponsorship Pays Well
The Benefits of Being a Sponsor and Working with a Sponsor in D.A.
This Fellowship-wide call will explore the incredible results that members have experienced from working with a sponsor and sponsoring others in D.A.
From the benefits of working through the steps to helping others with Step 1, there are great benefits to having a sponsor and being a sponsor in Debtors Anonymous. On this call a panel of three speakers who have experienced the benefits of both working with a sponsor and sponsoring others will share their experience, strength and hope on sponsorship.
It is through service that we grow in spirit, experience a remission of our common disease and watch our fellowship grow. Join us and share the joy.

All D.A. members are welcome to attend. Members interested in sponsorship as a path to spiritual growth and growth of the fellowship are especially welcome.

Saturday, March 25, 2017
6pm- 7.30pm UK
Dial-in Number:
0330 998 1214
Access Code:
D.A. members worldwide, including but not limited to Group and Intergroup Representatives, Speakers/Panelists, WSC FCC Committee members, and General Service Board members. Welcome to all.
Purpose of This Call:

To celebrate the path to recovery in D.A. Tool 3:

Sponsorship: We have found it essential to our recovery to have a sponsor and to be a sponsor. A sponsor is a recovering debtor who guides us through the Twelve Steps and shares his or her own experience, strength, and recovery.


The Statement of Purpose of Debtors Anonymous reads:
In D.A., our purpose is threefold: to stop incurring unsecured debt, to share our experience with the newcomer, and to reach out to other debtors.
Any member of D.A. can provide service and aid in reaching the debtor who still suffers. Our communication and service within the Fellowship is a means of growing spiritually and doing important service in and for Debtors Anonymous.

  • provide a forum for members to share their experience, strength, and hope regarding our common solution.

The mission of the Diversity Caucus is to support the Fellowship in carrying the message of Debtors Anonymous to the debtor in underserved populations and locations.
