Budget response: Abolishing Debt Relief Order fees important first step in tackling the household debt crisis

Responding to the announcement that Debt Relief Order fees are being abolished in today’s budget, Heidi Chow, Executive Director of Debt Justice said:

“Charging fees to people in debt crisis is utterly counterproductive, so this is an important first step that will benefit tens of thousands of people a year.”

“Now we need to see other barriers to accessing debt relief removed so that the millions of people weighed down by unmanageable debt have a clear route to becoming debt free.”
