Sensibly using credit and getting on the electrol roll ,is there a particular reason you want to improve it? Each cras score can be quite objective so it's your history and what's on your report that matters.

Stick everything on credit like car insurance etc. Just make sure you're only using what you can afford to pay

Being on the electoral roll helps.
Also, get a credit card, but make sure you pay it off IN FULL every month. You dont have to spend much on it or anything.

I wouldnt go as far as putting everything in credit, but having had some form of credit helps. Even if you just have a phone contract or something it helps.

Just use credit sensibly and that should be enough. It's whether you earn enough to get a mortgage that is also important
