CDER Group, Judicial Services and collections partner to the UK Government and commercial clients, has been named as a sponsor of the Money Advice Liaison Group (MALG) Conference 2023. This is the fourth year in a row that CDER Group has supported the event alongside other ongoing sponsorship of MALG National Members Meetings and wider activities as a ‘Friend of MALG’.

MALG is a UK-wide not-for-profit membership organisation which promotes ‘working together to improve the lives of people in debt’ through open and honest discussion between creditors, money advisers, collections firms, enforcement agents, regulators, the public sector, and other relevant parties. Now in its 36th year, the MALG Conference, which will take place on 9 November 2023 at the Birmingham Repertory Theatre, attracts 200 delegates from across the whole debt landscape.

Carole Kenney, Director of Welfare & Customer Care at CDER Group, commented:

“It is an absolute pleasure to support MALG in delivering national events which bring together such a diverse range of stakeholders to promote collaboration and effect positive change. It is fantastic to be part of a network of like-minded people passionate about improving the lives of people in debt and we are proud of our contribution to it. This year’s conference looks set to be one of the best yet at a time when the work we all do to support customers in financial difficulty matters more than ever.”

Bob Winnington, CEO of MALG, added:

“As a long-standing Member and supporter of MALG, CDER Group has truly shown its commitment to the wider sector and their ongoing support is testament to how mutually beneficial the relationship is. Our National Members Meetings, including a recent one at the London Transport Museum sponsored by CDER Group, are becoming increasingly popular and we hope to make this year’s conference even bigger and better thanks to the host of sponsors and exhibitors who have already committed so early in the year.”

Jon Hickman, NED & Co-Founder of Flexys Solutions, said of the MALG Conference in 2022:

“I’ve both organised and been to a few conferences in my time and this event is definitely a stand-out success. I was trying to put my finger on why – the organisation and attention to detail was excellent: joining instructions, printed programme in the badge, clear direction on the day, great venue, genuine welcome, good tech and tech-support – all essential components. But I think the stand-out for me was the authentic content and thoughtful programme; it was refreshing to see.”
