Alternatives to prosecuting vulnerable debtors

Project status Active

This project aims to find out how public services and their contracted partners in Wales might better respond to vulnerable debtors, especially those subject to prosecution and prison.

Our primary focus is on two forms of debt that Welsh public services have some control over – council tax debts, and rent arrears to government and social landlords. The project will involve an analysis of debt owed to public services in Wales, understanding the debtor experience, and reviewing the evidence on effective support for vulnerable people in debt across all sectors.
