Press release: Money Advice Service reveals plans to help people in debt difficulty

22 February 2012

Today we outlined our objectives for co-ordinating personal debt advice services from 1 April.

This follows the Government’s request to the Money Advice Service to initiate a new era of free advice provision.

Our focus will be to ensure timely help is provided to customers and that consistently high standards of advice are applied across the country wherever over-indebted customers may turn.

We revealed the main features of our new approach at a meeting in London today attended by Business Minister Norman Lamb MP, representatives of advice agencies and financial organisations.
