Welfare Reform: Are the benefits universal?

Money advisers from across Scotland gathered at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Glasgow on the 3rd and 4th June to discuss the key issues arising from welfare, bankruptcy and financial services regulatory reform at the annual Money Advice Scotland conference, sponsored by Walker Love.

With key note addresses from Margaret Curran, MP and Robert Skinner from the Lending Standards Board and a series of workshop discussions on bankruptcy, from a lenders, collectors and consumers perspective, welfare reform and regulation, the conference provides an opportunity for those in credit and debt advisory industry to come together to tackle the reform challenges and share best practice.

Walker Love is delighted to continue to support the 2013 MAS Annual Conference. As one of the largest firms of Messengers-at-Arms and Sheriff Officers, providing Collection and Enforcement services to a number of Local Authorities and Court users across the whole of Scotland.
