We hope that you are all keeping safe and well during this challenging time. Tomorrow, we will be hosting the third of our ‘Members Friday Forum’ sessions designed to help us all continue with MALG’s aim of ‘working together to improve the lives of people in debt’ during the Coronavirus crisis. As in previous weeks, the Zoom video conference will take place on Friday 10-11am and you are free to drop-in at any time. Find out more including how to join here. Please send us any questions you have or issues you would like to raise this week in advance to info@malg.org.uk.

Creditor email addresses

Following a request at the last forum, we have started collating a list of creditor email addresses for advisers to who are struggling to get in touch with their usual contacts on behalf of their clients. The list will continue to be updated as we get more details but what we have so far can be found here. Please send any others that you are happy to be made public to: info@malg.org.uk.
