R3 welcomes government’s priority for debt advice in new single advice body PDF Print E-mail
Monday, 20 February 2017
Commenting on the closure of the government consultation on the creation of a new single financial guidance body, Mark Sands, Chair of the Personal Insolvency Committee of R3, the insolvency and restructuring trade body, says:   “The creation of a new single advice body is welcome, and we’re pleased to see that the provision of readily available debt advice remains a government priority.

“It’s important that, when setting up the new body, the government does not just look at advice, but at how indebted individuals sort out their situation, including considering the stigma associated with debt and insolvency.

“It is also crucial that the new body works closely with existing debt advice stakeholders, including R3 and the insolvency profession, to break down barriers that stop indebted individuals from getting the advice they need and dealing with their debts in an appropriate manner.

“A greater understanding of the ‘journey’ an indebted individual goes on through the debt landscape would help identify barriers and establish solutions that will ensure a better long-term outcome for those in financial difficulty.”
