Money Advice Trust

The Money Advice Trust is a national charity helping people get out of debt, to budget and manage money. It was founded in 1991 as an independent charity with the support of the government, creditors and the advice sector more widely.  One of the original aims of the Trust was to work with partners to channel financial contributions from the creditor sector towards the funding of debt advice. By setting common standards and creating materials and courses, the Money Advice Trust and its partners have been at the forefront of ensuring quality and consistency of advice to people with debt problems. The Trust went on to run National DebtlineBusiness Debtline and to coordinate training across the sector through Wiseradviser.

The Money Advice Trust first engaged Biscon back in 2014 to help them pull together/update its Business Continuity Management System, including a comprehensive Business Continuity Plan to safeguard the services provided by the Trust.  The Trust has continued to utilise Biscon in subsequent years to exercise its Business Continuity Plan and ensure that it is kept up to date and fit for purpose.

Richard Gale, Head of Support Services for Money Advice Trust said: “I found working with Biscon extremely useful. The objective for utilising Biscon’s services was met in full rendering the Trust more resilient following the work carried out by Biscon.  All aspects of their work I would rate as excellent with no recommendation for improvements.

It is helpful to have a contact within Biscon, Steve Lambert who completed the work, to assist with those tricky questions which always arise from time to time.
