Policy and strategy
David Hawkes is AdviceUK’s National Money Advice Co-ordinator and part of the policy and campaigns team. He has responsibility for money advice and debt policy matters at AdviceUK.
Debt policy work at AdviceUK is focused on promoting the value and significance of the money advice services provided by members of the AdviceUK network, representing the views of AdviceUK and its members within the advice sector, to policy makers and to other relevant bodies, and on working with the Money Advice Trust (MAT) and major advice providers and funders on the development and implementation of the future strategy for the delivery of debt advice.
In practice, this is performed by: -
Representing AdviceUK on MAT's Partnership Board and its Training Strategy Group
Generating publicity for the work of AdviceUK’s money advice member agencies and encouraging research on debt and credit issues
Contributing to the development of public, commercial and advice sector policy on money advice through liaison with statutory bodies, the credit industry and other advice providers
Representing AdviceUK on the Money Advice Sub Group of the Financial Inclusion Task Force and on other forums such as the Consumer Finance Forum and the Money Advice Liaison Group
