Debt advice steering group

Coordinating work to support people in financial difficulties is the responsibility of the debt advice steering group (DASG), chaired by the Money Advice Service and drawing its membership from the senior staff of the major advice sector and creditor organisations from across the UK.

The DASG has established increased engagement with debt advice as its current priority in light of the extremely low proportion of over-indebted people that seek such support.

The DASG comprises the following named members:

  • Steve Johnson - Advice UK
  • Catherine McGrath - Barclays
  • Gillian Guy - Citizens Advice
  • Fiona Hoyle - Finance and Leasing Association
  • Damien Conyngham-Hynes - HM Treasury

  • Robert Skinner - Money Advice Service
  • Joanna Elson - Money Advice Trust
  • Elaine Downey - Northern Ireland representative
  • Brian Holland - RBS
  • Yvonne MacDermid OBE - Scotland representative
  • Phil Andrew - Stepchange
  • Eric Leenders - UK Finance
  • Bob Chapman - Wales representative
