Meet our StepChangeVA Insolvency Practitioner

We have a dedicated Insolvency Practitioner who oversees our hardworking Voluntary Arrangements team and ensures your individual voluntary arrangement (IVA) is suitable to your needs.  

When you enter into an IVA, you do so with the assurance that your debts will be dealt with in a structured, professional way. As IVAs are set over a fixed period of time, they can give you a clear forecast of when your debts will be paid off.

Clare Lindley has years of industry expertise and shares the charity's passion for confidential and practical debt solutions. Through her team of supervisors and caseworkers, she'll guide you through each stage of your IVA and provide any support you need.
