Money Advice Liaison Group Logo


The Money Advice Liaison Group (MALG) has been running an annual conference for the debt advice and wider sectors since 1987. Run by a ‘not-for-profit’ organisation, the MALG Conference is unique in that there is no commercial, regulatory, or political agenda and its entire purpose is focused on MALG’s long term aim of ‘working together to improve the lives of people in problem debt’. It is the ‘must attend’ event for anyone who sees this purpose as part of their role, from responsible lenders and collections/enforcement professionals, to grassroots money advisers and policy makers.
