There is a link in the petition back to the IVA.Co.UK thread which introduces my line of thinking.
I happened to stumble on to the next page about your local MP.
I didn't know who mine was, but I do now. So I decided to pen her an email too. She might just bin it, but maybe this is another avenue we could try to be heard or at least make those in government we can contact directly, aware of the situation.
Anyway, we'll see what happens.
I have never written to my local MP before and don't know how effective it is, or whether you get noticed, so with this I am about to find out.
I am living in the Redditch area and unfortunately ended up in an IVA. Fortunately, I am coming to the end of mine, after a long and stressful 6yrs.
Main reason for being steered into one was due to PPIs, poor health and only temporary agency work available at that time.
I joined a forum that has members currently in or have been in an IVA for some support or advice, because there is nowhere else or no independent regulator to go to.
A petition was posted, which I signed on the forum, to the Government requesting to put an independent mediator body in place, so that people like me can use, if they have any concerns or fears BEFORE entering such a long and committed financial plan.
I hope you will read my email and take into consideration my case and many others like me and feel compelled to comment in favour for us in Parliament as a representive of just an ordinary hardworking person like me in your constituency.
Thankyou for taking the time to read this email and I hope to receive some feedback from you soon.
