A quote given out during the awards suggests that “Taken forward well, this initiative can become a standard part of data offerings across the credit bureau”
The important work that the VRS is doing to protect and support financially vulnerable consumers was recognised last night when it was a winner in the prestigious Credit Awards 2019, in the category of Credit Information Provider of the Year.
The VRS team are delighted to have won the award at this prestigious industry event, particularly when up against some of the most established names in the industry who were on the shortlist.
It is a particular honour to have received this industry endorsement of the work that the VRS are doing to support vulnerable consumers, given that the service has been operational for a relatively short time. It reflects the strength of the proposition, and the consumer need for the service that VRS are providing. Hopefully it can help to increase awareness of the ways in which credit providers can help vulnerable people to take control over their financial situation.
