Why TellJO

We believe that the current system is broken, the way arrears are pursued often causes harm and inequality. Everyone misses a payment for a reason, nobody wants the stress and indignity of being chased for money. The reasons for getting into crisis are what we call the vulnerabilities, including poor mental or physical health, low financial capability, low financial resilience or a life changing event.

If we can help organisations understand the personal reasons for non-payment, we can build long term resilience and wellbeing in their customers. Social Responsibility, is not just a nice to have.

TellJO can use social responsibility to reduce costs and improve the wellbeing of your customers.

Help, not harm.
