HMCTS Reform online event 28 October 2019: Warrant of Control Support Centres

A recording of the live event hosted on 28 October 2019, including presentation slides.

The event included discussions with:

  • Simon Vowles - Head of Civil, Family & Tribunals, North West region
  • Alana Evans - Service Manager, Civil Enforcement
  • Stuart Wright - Civil Enforcement Team

This event gave more information about our new warrant of control support centres, and gave attendees the chance to provide feedback on what we’ve done so far.

In our new centres we aim to engage with debtors earlier to try to resolve the warrant as soon as possible. Using this approach, we can provide improved support to those who need it, provide quicker resolution of disputes and reduce the need for bailiff involvement and unnecessary doorstep visits. In turn, bailiffs’ time is released to allow them to work on the cases where debtors can’t be easily contacted or where initial contact hasn’t resolved the warrant.

The event was held for legal professionals, professional court users and the third sector.
