Bailiff Reform

Many local authorities instruct bailiffs against a vast number of vulnerable individuals and families, causing unnecessary distress and spiralling charges for people in need.

As part of a coalition of charities and advice services, we are campaigning for greater regulation of, and more ethical practice in, the bailiff industry.

If you or someone you know has been affected by bailiffs, you can share your story here: https://www.bailiffreform.org/

For more information on how different Councils compare on bailiff policy, see our Stop the Knock website here: https://www.stoptheknock.org/

If you'd like to get involved in this campaign, please email Jen at [email protected].

Rent-to-own and affordable credit

Families living in poverty often cannot access affordable credit, and cannot afford basic household goods such as a fridge or washing machine. As a result, they are forced to turn to rent-to-own companies - those which charge excessively high interest rates that force many families into a spiral of problem debt.

As part of the End Child Poverty Coalition, we are asking MPs to push this important issue onto the government's agenda.

Please take a minute to send this email to your MP and help those families struggling in poverty: https://cpag.e-activist.com/page/16142/action/1?ea.tracking.id=mczrl6ed
