TESTIMONIALS



'Thank you Ripon for speaking at Ealing Covid 19 Mutual aid group on Universal credit.  I had no idea how complex the regime is and now understand how some of my clients have fallen through the gaps and ended up without money or support.  Despite the direness of the subject Ripon explained very clearly and with good humour. We'll ask you back again!' 



Rheian Davies, Winner of Legal Aid Lawyer of the Year, and Covid-19 Nurse at Nightingale Hospital (20/04/2020)




“The launch of UCAN (the Universal Credit Action Network) by money adviser Ripon Ray, provides a useful forum for poverty activists. 

Ripon’s friendly and interactive presentations cut through the complexities of Universal Credit. You can learn a lot from UCAN.  



Stuart Goodman, London Money Advice Group  Co-ordinator(30/01/2020)


“Ripon came to the Trust for London offices to provide us with a valuable learning seminar full of the latest updates on topics such as Universal Credit, welfare reform, council tax reduction and more. All of the team found it helpful and illuminating to support our work as an independent charitable foundation tackling poverty and inequality across London, and we’re grateful to Ripon for sharing his knowledge.” 



Emily Fiddy Communications Officer - Trust for London - 30/10/2019


'Despite being an essential life skill, Money Management is always a difficult sell to our homeless clients, as it's a rather dry topic. Ripon, however, makes it accessible and even entertaining.  He is a rare hybrid of engaging and accomplished trainer AND subject matter expert on all things money – just what we needed!’



Cordelia Wise, Manager of Enterprise and Employment, St Martin-In-the-Field, homelessness charity (London) 15/09/2019

A debt free path for a mental health sufferer

It’s a well-known fact that individuals who suffer from a hampered mental capacity - be it mental health or learning difficulties - are most likely to be vulnerable in our communities. They are also more likely to be victims of miss-sold products and services by companies, even though organisations that are providing financial products and services have a duty under the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) to take extra care towards these individuals. This is what the FCA has to say about vulnerable customers: ‘  The vulnerability of the customer, in particular where the firm understands the customer has some form of mental capacity limitation or reasonably suspects this to be so because the customer displays indications of some form of mental capacity limitation  (see  ■  CONC 2.10) But due to a culture of intensive selling to consumers, generated by employers placing and enforcing - often difficult and unrealistic - performance goals which are attached to tempting

Is Council Tax really Poll Tax? Where is the momentum for a new campaign?

‘I have not been able to pay my council tax for last four years. Bailiffs have lied to me to get money from me. I still can’t afford it!’  says Joanna Robinson on Money Matters show on East London Radio in March 2018.   During the period 2016-17, bailiffs were used by councils on nearly 1.5 million occasions in order to attempt recovery of council tax arrears. As in Joanna's case, residents were summoned to court for being too poor to pay - accruing court costs, subjected to the ignominy and anxiety having to face enforcement agents, and already too poor to pay, further indebtedness.   As I hear the horror stories of bailiff’s knocking on debtors’ doors under the new Council Tax Reduction Scheme (CTRS), I am beginning to worry that the Scheme is really just a Poll Tax rehash. I was too young to remember what the Poll Tax was when it was first introduced in the late 1980s. My parents never spoke about it. In my work I started to notice from 2013 onwards that mo
