Repossessions advice group
The purpose of the Repossession Advice Group (RAG) is to develop and implement, on behalf of Scottish Ministers, the advice related non-legislative recommendations made by the working groups of the Government’s Debt Action Forum – the Repossessions Working Group and the Access to Advice Sub-Group.
The RAG brings together a group of bodies with a shared interest in effective access to advice on mortgage-debt related issues. Rather than organisations separately considering what their individual part is in this, bringing everyone together helps to identify where there was a need to connect activity together, where there is a risk of duplication of effort, what issues need to be clarified and where there is positive benefit to be gained from working jointly on activity.
The RAG is made up of the following members:
- The Scottish Legal Aid Board (Chair)
- Scottish Government
- Citizens Advice Scotland
- Money Advice Scotland
- Consumer Focus Scotland
- Convention of Scottish Local Authorities
- Scottish Association of Law Centres
- The Law Society of Scotland
- The Scottish Court Service
- Shelter Scotland
- The Council of Mortgage Lenders.
