New representitive body for Debt Counsellors ?

At the recent Annual Debt Counselling Conference in Pretoria it was lamented by some that the only representitive body for DC's was DCASA. However a recent email reveals the birth of a new representitive body called the Society for Debt Counsellors (SDC)

See their email below:

To all Debt Counsellors.

We are proud to announce that we have founded the SOCIETY FOR DEBT COUNSELLORS (SDC).

The SDC is a professional body of experts that aim to empower debt counsellors in South Africa. We strive to assist DC’s in their complex work environments, and play an instrumental role in taking Debt Counselling matters forward. A founding committee of debt counsellors has been established to oversee the process.

The establishment of the Society is due to the demand of a number of DC’s who have identified that issues of major importance, pertaining to Debt Counselling and the role of debt counsellors, are not being addressed, e.g. DC fees have not been increased since 2008 – we want to know why. The SDC will provide a platform for these issues to be raised AND acted upon. At present, each DC stands alone and faces challenges and issues which are common to all debt counsellors.

It is time for us to stand together and fight together to get the answers we need!

We need to have a body that speaks for us. The objective of the SDC is to give DC’s in South Africa a voice that must be heard and acted upon.

If you are interested in joining the Society for Debt Counsellors we would like to hear from you.

Yours sincerely,

The SCE Team

Society for Debt Counsellors


Fax: 086 617 1453

We look forward to seeing how this new body will influence the industry and wish them all the best.
