Introducing a new approach to the oversight of enforcement, with Lord Wolfson

Saturday, 19 March 2022, 09:00 - 11:00

Problem debt ruins lives. The CSJ is reminded regularly by our Alliance of small charities of the way it tears families apart, the strain it puts on employment, and its close relationship with alcohol and substance dependency. The Money and Mental Health Policy Institute estimates that as many as 100,000 people in problem debt attempt suicide every year. Every individual reaching crisis point represents a missed opportunity to secure an early and sustainable pathway out of debt. For this reason, enforcement firms must carefully balance the rights of creditors with a responsibility to support people out of the spiral of indebtedness.

We are delighted that Lord Wolfson of Tredegar, Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State at the Ministry of Justice, will join us at this important event to discuss a new approach to the oversight of enforcement.

In this event: a keynote by Lord Wolfson, followed by a panel discussion in which guest will reflect on the process of developing the enforcement oversight body, the challenges relevant to enforcement and vulnerable people in debt today, and what is needed for the Enforcement Conduct Board to succeed.
