StepChange Debt Charity response to latest insolvency statistics
27 January 2017
In response to the Government's latest insolvency statistics Mike O’Connor, Chief Executive of StepChange Debt Charity, said:
“Insolvencies are on the increase and consumer credit is hitting pre-financial crisis levels. We have also seen record numbers of people coming to us for debt advice in 2016."
“It is time to look hard at whether the protections for people in financial difficulty are both adequate and accessible for the future.”
