If you are unsure about making a nomination, here’s what the 2017 Debt Team of the Year winner has to say about the experience and impact of winning:
“It was fantastic to have the team’s hard work, knowledge and commitment recognised nationally. Attending the award ceremony and the IMA conference was a great experience, not just because of the award, but to hear about what other people are doing and learn from their experiences.
We decided to use the prize money to help support our needier clients in the run up to Christmas. We will be donating shopping vouchers, and to top up the funds are launching a campaign in which we are asking people who don’t claim their winter fuel allowance to consider claiming it and donating it.
We’d encourage other teams and individuals to enter this year’s awards. It wasn’t a difficult or overly time consuming process, and just being shortlisted is a great boost.”
